This presentation focuses on the oceanic circulation over the Agulhas Bank, which is the continental shelf region located at the southern tip of the African continent. Model and observations are used to characterize the time mean circulation its seasonal evolution and its interannual variability. Model results are compared with in-situ and satellite observations. A suite of process-oriented experiments evaluates the relative contributions of local wind forcing, tides and the Agulhas Current on the shelf dynamics and on the shelf/deep-ocean exchanges.
