Abstract This is raw Thermosalinograph (TSG) data from the St Helena Bay Monitoring Line, which now falls under the Integrated Ecosystem Programme: Southern Benguela, on the Algoa Voyage 196, 4 to 8 March, 2013.The St Helena Bay Monitoring Line was initiated as a BENEFIT-driven project on "shipboard monitoring" which linked with similar lines run in Namibia and Angola. The aims are to obtain seasonal and interannual information on the hydrology and productivity of the area. Data on harmful algal blooms, low oxygen water and intrusions of Agulhas Bank water along the west coast will also be collected. A long-term, multi-decadel time-series (from 1951 onward) of information already exists for this important region and has continued in the form of the IEP:SB to detect long-term changes in the hydrology and the plankton, which are important for the detection of regime shifts.
Methods Raw data in their original format, as received from the instrument and unprocessed.
