Scientific Objectives

The South African Climates (SAFARI) Expedition (IODP Proposal 702-Full2) will investigate the interaction between climate and the Agulhas Current during the Plio/Pleistocene. Six drill sites in the southern Indian Ocean and Mozambique Channel will determine (1) the sensitivity of the Agulhas Current, (2) the dynamics of Indian-Atlantic gateway circulation, and (3) the connection between Agulhas Leakage and shifts of the Atlantic Meridional Overturning Circulation (AMOC) during major ocean and climate reorganizations of the past 5 Ma.

This expedition will also include the Agulhas Current Density Profile ancillary project (IODP Proposal 845-APL), which will reconstruct temperature and salinity over a depth transect during the last glacial maximum.
