Ocean waves are monitored continuously at Mossel Bay in South Africa. Detailed information is directly available in real-time, for operational purposes, to NPA (Mossel Bay).
The data is gathered with a non-directional Datawell Waverider buoy, situated at 34° 7'28.82"S, 22° 9'12.60"E in 24 m water, about 2.7 km off the coast. 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.
