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
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.
