Ocean waves are monitored continuously at East London in South Africa.
Detailed information is directly available in real-time, for operational
purposes, to NPA (East London).
The data is gathered with a directional
buoy, situated at 33° 2'16.80"S, 27°55'50.99"E in 27 m water,
about 1.2 km off the tip of the breakwater. Measurements are processed on
board, and transmitted to a shore station every half hour.
The analysed data is then downloaded in near real-time to the
Stellenbosch office of the CSIR,
where it is stored in a database.
