QUICCHE is a cutting-edge collaborative physical oceanography process study to quantify the heat and salt fluxes that are transported from the warm
Agulhas into the Atlantic via fine scale flows,
a key process regulating the global overturning circulation and our climate. The project involves an international team of researchers from the USA, UK, Sweden and South Africa.
Polar Gliders (University of Gothenburg) will be deploying three autonomous underwater vehicles and two surface vehicles. An additional surface vehichle, a waveglider will be deployed by SOCCO, CSIR (South Africa).
