Abstract/Summary

A strong but variable western boundary current flows south along the east coast of Madagascar, and at the island's southern end it interacts with eddies propagating zonally from the east. These two routes of variability are compared using altimetric sea-surface-height data and dynamic height from a high-resolution numerical model. The effects on biological productivity are also discussed.
