Short summary
A new three-dimensional data set of the horizontal velocity in the upper 2000 m that covers the years 1993 to 2015 is used to analyze the variability of the Benguela Current. This data set was derived using observations from Argo floats, satellite sea surface height, and wind fields. With this new observational data set, we identify the complex flow pattern in this region and provide a detailed analysis of the variability in the volume transport of this current.
