                              • The Southwest MAdagascar Coastal Current (SMACC) is a newly discovered surface poleward current
                              • The SMACC exhibits a seasonal cycle and is driven by thewind stress curl

                              Upwelling south of Madagascar has two separated upwelling cells (Core 1, Core 2)

                              Cores are subjected by different variabilities, intensities, and forcing mechanisms

                              Cores are generated by dual forcing: wind-driven and currents influences.

                      A Benguela Niño developed from November 2010 to April 2011 along Angola and Namibia

                      It was generated by a relaxation of the trade winds in the western equatorial Atlantic

                      The equatorial origin was detected by altimetry and PIRATA mooring array

                      The equatorial dynamical signature is reproduced by an ocean Linear Model forced by wind.
