Abstract:

Data are presented from an experiment designed to explore the spatial and temporal structure of the Agulhas Current and Retroflexion by direct means. Included are the current meter results from 10 moorings in the Retroflexion region, CTD stations occupied on the deployment cruise in 1985, data from satellite tracked ARGOS freely drifting surface buoys and numerous images of the sea surface temperature. In addition, this report includes a floppy disk on which can be found the one-day average currents, the path of the Agulhas Current, CTD station in Live Atlas format, SST frontal analyses Chassignet and Olson, personal communication as well as programs written in QuickBASIC which allow one to access and display these observations. The programs are stored in ASCII an can be run under the Microsoft QuickBasic Version 4.0 or higher. Instructions for running the programs can be found in a file entitled read.me on the disk.
