  1. Fine-time resolution measurements of atmospheric boundary layer properties between Cape Town and Marion Island

    Fine-time resolution measurements of atmospheric boundary layer properties between Cape Town and Marion Island

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: South African Journal of Marine Science
    A relative humidity probe was added to an existing set of meteorological measurement devices aboard the M.V. S.A. Agulhas to provide an automatic, unmanned, air-sea interaction measuring system, from which the exchange of momentum, heat and water vapour at the...
  2. Coastal oceanic climate change and variability from 1982 to 2009 around South Africa

    Coastal oceanic climate change and variability from 1982 to 2009 around South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Changes and fluctuations in sea surface temperature (SST) around the South African coast are analysed at a monthly scale from 1982 to 2009. There is a statistically significant negative trend of up to 0.5 °C per decade in the southern...
  3. Human-mediated drivers of change — impacts on coastal ecosystems and marine biota of South Africa

    Human-mediated drivers of change — impacts on coastal ecosystems and marine biota of South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Coastal ecosystems are highly vulnerable to human-mediated drivers of global change because they are located at the land–ocean interface and often host centres of urbanisation and development. The South African coastline comprises several distinct coastal ecoregions that support a wide...
  4. Extension of PIRATA in the tropical South-East Atlantic: an initial one-year experiment

    Extension of PIRATA in the tropical South-East Atlantic: an initial one-year experiment

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The Pilot (later termed Prediction) and Research Moored Array in the Tropical Atlantic (PIRATA) programme, developed as a multinational network by Brazil, France and the USA, has deployed and maintained an array of 17 Autonomous Temperature Line Acquisition Systems (ATLAS)...
  5. 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...
