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 Datawell Waverider 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.
