XBT Analysis - Agulhas Current velocity at 28°S
The Agulhas Current
Location of IX21, which is used to compute the Agulhas Current velocity at 28°S, overlaid on the (left) Mean Dynamic Topography, and (right) Mean Geostrophic Velocity from the MDT_CNES-CLS09 climatology.
Mean Agulhas Current velocity (28°S)
Baroclinic geostrophic velocity accross IX21 based on preliminary analysis of the XBT data.
The XBT data along IX21 can be obtained here>>
The Mean Dynamic Topography and Mean Geostrophic Velocity fields are from the MDT_CNES-CLS09 climatology produced by CLS Space Oceanography Division and distributed by AVISO, with support from CNES.
