Abstract

The Agulhas system transports warm and salty waters from the Indian to the Atlantic Ocean
and therefore acts as a key element in the global oceanic circulation. Studies have shown
that mesoscale processes are not only important for the correct description of the circulation
around South Africa itself but also for its impact on the Gulf Stream system in the North
Atlantic.
