Agulhas Current Time-series

Twenty two year Agulhas Current Time-series volume transport proxy

This is a 22 year proxy of Agulhas Current volume transport, as described in Beal & Elipot (2016): http://dx.doi.org/10.1038/nature19853 and used in Elipot and Beal (2018): https://doi.org/10.1175/JCLI-D-17-0597.1. The code to produce the proxy is available at: https://github.com/selipot/actproxy

If you use these data, please include the following citation and acknowledgement: 
The Agulhas Current transport proxy (Beal and Elipot, 2016) is based on a relationship between satellite sea surface height and in situ current meter measurements from the Agulhas Current Time-series (ACT) experiment and can be downloaded at https://beal-agulhas.rsmas.miami.edu/data-and-products/index.html. 


Three year in situ Agulhas Current transport

This 34 month in situ time series of Agulhas Current transport includes measurements of the boundary layer transport (Tbox), as well as a streamwise defined jet transport (Tjet). For more details, see Beal et al. (2015): http://dx.doi.org/10.1175/JPO-D-14-0119.1. This transport is based on the gridded velocity data available below.

If you use these data, please include the following citation and acknowledgement: 
Agulhas Current transport is based on in situ current meter measurements from the Agulhas Current Time-series (ACT) experiment (Beal et al., 2015) and can be downloaded at https://beal-agulhas.rsmas.miami.edu/data-and-products/index.html.


Three year gridded cross sectional velocity of the Agulhas Current

34 months of gridded cross sectional velocity, from the Agulhas Current Time-series. These velocities are used to create the volume transport time series (above).

If you use these data, please include the following citation and acknowledgement: 
Gridded cross-sectional velocities are based on in situ current meter measurements from the Agulhas Current Time-series (ACT) experiment (Beal et al., 2015) and can be downloaded at https://beal-agulhas.rsmas.miami.edu/data-and-products/index.html.
