Physical-Chemical Oceanography Cruise on the Africana Voyage 067, September 1988

The Physical-Chemical Oceanography Cruise was conducted on the Africana Voyage 067 from 14 - 30 September 1988. This cruise was divided into two legs with the first leg focusing on physical oceanography and the latter on chemical oceanography. The purpose of the first leg of the cruise was primarily to moor current meters and water-level recorders at various sites, mostly north of the Orange River, and to obtain a precise set of Conductivity-Temperature-Depth (CTD) data on a line running...

Seaglider test data collected during GINA 2017 by Seaglider SG574 in Cape Town harbour

The Gliders IN the Agulhas (GINA) project is a multi-institutional effort to implement sustained glider observations around South Africa’s coastline to enhance existing regional networks and complement larger international observations systems such as the Ocean Gliders Boundary Ocean Observing Network (BOON). Ocean gliders are robotic platforms operated and piloted from land. The Seaglider during GINA was set-up to vertically profile the water column between depths of 0 and 1000m....

Long-term observations of daily bottom temperatures at Port Nolloth (April 1997 - October 1997)

At selected sites around Southern Africa, Underwater Tempearture Recorders (UTRs) have been used to obtain long-term records of bottom temperature in the nearshore environment, at depths ranging from 2m to 34m. Here we present processed daily subsurface temperatures from UTRs located at a depth of 5m off Port Nolloth (29.2524°S; 16.8671°E), along the west coast of South Africa, between 24 April 1997 and 14 October 1997.
