Main aims: • Assess the congeneracy of AzC and StHC and their associated fronts with data synergy of satellite altimetry (SLA, EKE , ADT, surface geostrophic velocity), SST and hydrological in situ data; • Improve the knowledge of the South Atlantic variability, the Atlantic inter-hemispheric connections and the correlation of long-period oceanic variability with Atlantic phenomena of coupled atmosphere-ocean variability; • Determination of the AzC and StHC axes from both altimetry (using the
