Seasonal flow cytometry counts of picoplankton from the west coast of South Africa (May 2015 to February 2017)

Little is known about the distribution and abundance of picoplankton in coastal waters off southern Africa. This data set is part of a PhD study in which picoplankton were sampled from two depths at four sampling lines along the west coast of South Africa in May, September and November 2015, February, May, August and November 2016, and February 2017. Cell counts were made using a BD Accuri C6 flow cytometer and a BD LSRII flow cytometer. The data set contains cell counts for Synechococcus,...

Hybrid Coordinate Ocean Model (HYCOM) EnOI Version 1.1 Raw (L3R) Regional Agulhas 10km Ocean State Estimate 2009

The greater Agulhas Current is one of the most energetic current systems in the global ocean. It plays a fundamental role in determining the mean state and variability of the regional marine environment, affecting its resources and ecosystem, the regional weather and the global climate on a broad range of temporal and spatial scales. In the absence of a coherent in-situ and satellite-based observing system in region, modelling and data assimilation techniques play a crucial role in both...
