INALT20

Indian Ocean and Atlantic Nest at 1/20°

To investigate the role of (sub-)mesoscale variability in the Agulhas region around South Africa and the interplay between Agulhas and the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, INALT20 is set up as the successor of INALT01. Apart from the increased resolution the new configuration also expands into the Southern ocean.
