The Agulhas Current transports warm and salty waters from the east coast of Africa to the south east Atlantic Ocean. It provided beautiful eddies.
This animation represents the current at 18 meters depth from the model ORCA12 during the period 2004-2006.
In real time and on a global scale, on the coastline or off-shore, on the surface or in the ocean's depths, Mercator Ocean can describe, explain and forecast, while always staying one ocean ahead.
