    The nutrient characteristics of the Agulhas Bank

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    The distribution of nutrients over the Agulhas Bank, based on an analysis of historical hydrographic data, demonstrates the existence of three distinct nutrient provinces. The western Agulhas Bank is largely driven by the Benguela system and derives its higher nutrient...
  2. Mesoscale features and phytoplankton biomass at the GoodHope line in the Southern Ocean during austral summer

    Mesoscale features and phytoplankton biomass at the GoodHope line in the Southern Ocean during austral summer

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Two sets of high-resolution subsurface hydrographic and underway surface chlorophyll a (Chl a) measurements are used, in conjunction with satellite remotely sensed data, to investigate the upper layer oceanography (mesoscale features and mixed layer depth variability) and phytoplankton biomass at...
  3. Transport and transformation of surface water masses across the Mascarene Plateau during the Northeast Monsoon season

    Transport and transformation of surface water masses across the Mascarene Plateau during the Northeast Monsoon season

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Mascarene Plateau lies in the south-west Indian Ocean between the islands of Mauritius and the Seychelles Bank, and is characterised by a series of shallow banks separated by deep (>1 000 m), narrow channels. The plateau acts as an...
