Agulhas Current Observing System Design Workshop

9 – 13 Sep 2024, Cape Town, South Africa

Date: 9-13 September 2024
Location: Cape Town, South Africa

Boundary currents directly influence the understanding of regional weather systems, significantly impact marine heatwave and tropical cyclones and impacts the local fisheries and aquaculture. The purpose of this workshop is to develop priority gap areas, observational requirements and a resulting design of an ocean observing system to better understand key features in the Agulhas current region. This workshop will also determine potential overlaps and opportunity for other key features to be considered in the design including Tropical Cyclones, Fisheries and Marine Heatwaves.
