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° 2'60.00"S, 17°58'23.99"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.
