Supplementary data:


The Agulhas is a convoluted and multifarious system [1]. It consists of a western boundary current, the Agulhas Current, which is arguably one of the most prominent current systems of the Southern Hemisphere (Fig.1). The Agulhas Current, roughly on par with its Northern Hemisphere counterpart, the Gulf Stream, carries vast amount of heat and salt towards the pole [2].
