Agulhas ocean currents, southern Africa. Satellite-based graphic showing ocean currents (swirling coloured lines) around the coast of Africa. The colours indicate ocean temperatures, ranging from the warm tropics (red) to cooler water (green) in more temperate latitudes. The warm Agulhas Current (off eastern Africa) forms rings as it retroflects off cooler water in the Agulhas Basin off the southern tip of Africa.
