About this book

The Agulhas Current is one of the major currents of the world ocean. In the network of currents that connect the major ocean basins, it forms a key link. This linkage may be of critical importance in the way the ocean affects the earth's climate and climate change. Lutjeharms describes the origin of the Agulhas Current, its behaviour, its influence on the adjacent continental shelf, its effect on local weather as well as its role in linking the Indian and Atlantic Oceans.

Media reviews

From the reviews: "Lutjeharms does a remarkable job of presenting the Agulhas to the wider community. His encyclopedic knowledge nicely draws together the many research studies devoted to the Agulhas Current system to produce an excellent, objective, and well-written analysis. ! Professor Johann R.E. Lutjeharms has produced a truly scholarly work, drawing from a multitude of research papers, many from his own pen, and presenting to us with clarity the complex oceanography of the Agulhas Current system ! . Johann: On target and well done!" (Arnold L. Gordon, Oceanography, Vol. 20 (1), 2007) "A comprehensive and passionate survey of the collected general knowledge of the greater Agulhas Current system ! . I highly recommend this book to all students and researchers of the greater Agulhas system. The author has succeeded in writing a book that will be considered a standard work for years to come. The book is very well written, nicely bound, and looks extremely attractive inside and out. ! This book is a must for everyone working in or on the greater Agulhas Current system." (Will P. M. de Ruijter, Eos, Vol. 89 (10), 2008)
