Saldanha Bay
Saldanha Bay

Ocean waves are monitored continuously at the entrance to Saldanha Bay in South Africa.  Detailed information is directly available in real-time, for operational purposes, to NPA (Saldanha Bay).

The data is gathered with a non-directional Datawell Waverider buoy, situated at 33? 2' 59.28"S, 17?58'41.88"E in 23 m water, 0.5 km off the berm. 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.
