  1. Circulation patterns in the Delagoa Bight, Mozambique, and the influence of deep ocean eddies

    Circulation patterns in the Delagoa Bight, Mozambique, and the influence of deep ocean eddies

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    An investigation of the circulation patterns and thermohaline structures in the Delagoa Bight, Mozambique, was undertaken during May 2004, August 2004, April 2005, and April 2006, using hydrographic surveys, surface drifters and satellite imagery. Hydrographic and satellite data during May...
  2. Phytoplankton production and adaptation in the vicinity of Pemba and Zanzibar islands, Tanzania

    Phytoplankton production and adaptation in the vicinity of Pemba and Zanzibar islands, Tanzania

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Phytoplankton production and physiology were investigated at six selected locations during a research cruise in early October 2007 in Tanzanian coastal waters. The dataset included photosynthesis– irradiance and active fluorescence parameters, phytoplankton absorption coefficients, and pigment concentrations. Primary production was...
  3. St Helena Bay (southern Benguela) then and now: muted climate signals, large human impact

    St Helena Bay (southern Benguela) then and now: muted climate signals, large human impact

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    The development of suitable reference states for ecosystem-based management requires documentation of changes in structure and functioning of marine ecosystems, including assessment of the relative importance of bottom-up and top-down processes as drivers of change. We used monitoring data available...
  4. Phytoplankton absorption and pigment adaptation of a red tide in the Benguela ecosystem

    Phytoplankton absorption and pigment adaptation of a red tide in the Benguela ecosystem

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Phytoplankton absorption and pigment characteristics of a red tide were investigated in coastal waters of the southern Benguela. Diagnostic indices indicated that dinoflagellates were the dominant phytoplankton group, with diatoms and small flagellates being of secondary importance. Very high biomass...
  5. Effects of deep-sea eddies on the northern KwaZulu-Natal shelf, South Africa

    Effects of deep-sea eddies on the northern KwaZulu-Natal shelf, South Africa

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    This paper describes the westward movement of a cyclonic eddy across the Mozambique Channel and the subsequent south-westward propagation of the eddy along the east coast of South Africa and its interaction with the shelf. A hydrographic survey on 13...
  6. Primary production in the Benguela ecosystem, 1999–2002

    Primary production in the Benguela ecosystem, 1999–2002

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Phytoplankton production was investigated throughout the whole Benguela ecosystem in winter 1999 and in summer 2002 during two four-week research cruises from Cape Town, South Africa, through Namibian waters to Namibe in southern Angola. Primary production ranged from 0.14–2.26 g...
  7. Mergers and Acquisitions in Africa: A Review and an Emerging Research Agenda

    Mergers and Acquisitions in Africa: A Review and an Emerging Research Agenda

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: Africa Journal of Management
    This article identifies and reviews existing merger and acquisition (M&A) studies focused on African markets. In this review, the factors mentioned directly or alluded to in the existing studies that distinguish African countries as target nations from other countries traditionally...
  8. Chemotaxonomic investigation of phytoplankton in the shelf ecosystem of the KwaZulu-Natal Bight, South Africa <xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0001"/>

    Chemotaxonomic investigation of phytoplankton in the shelf ecosystem of the KwaZulu-Natal Bight, South Africa <xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0001"/>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    Phytoplankton community structure was elucidated during summer and winter in the KwaZulu-Natal Bight using pigment and CHEMTAX analyses. The surface pattern in January 2010 indicated that diatoms, haptophytes and prasinophytes tended to be the most prominent groups inshore and in...

    Environmental influence on phytoplankton production during summer on the KwaZulu-Natal shelf of the Agulhas ecosystem<xref ref-type="fn" rid="FN0001"/>

    Item type: Journal Article • Journal: African Journal of Marine Science
    During February 2010, studies of primary production (PP) and physiology were conducted at five selected sites in the KwaZulu-Natal (KZN) Bight of the Agulhas ecosystem as part of a programme to elucidate the influence of major physical driving forces and...
