About this Book

Published by the American Geophysical Union as part of the Lecture Notes on Coastal and Estuarine Studies Series volume 26.

Oceanographic research has expanded rapidly in the latter half of this century. To a large extent this has been as a result of an increased awareness of the importance of the ocean, while new technologies and resources have enabled a much better data coverage to be obtained.
Lying along the eastern seaboard of South Africa, the province of Natal has many important associations with the ocean. Oceanographic research here has gone through several phases, without apparently a definite commitment on the part of the authorities to support such investigations. At present there is limited work being done, without much prospect for a major upturn in the foreseeable future.
