Ocean waves are monitored continuously at Nqura in South Africa.
Detailed information is directly available in real-time, for operational
purposes, to NPA (Port of Ngqura).
The data is gathered with a directional
buoy, situated at 33°50'00"S, 25°43'00"E in 21 m water,
about 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.
