dc.description.abstract With the limitations of in situ observations of the ocean, numerical modeling of the ocean can easily provide clues to the structures and processes that lie therein. This project is an example of the examination of numerical model output. In this case, the area of interest is an area of ocean off Namaqualand which displays a reaction to local wind forcing. A transect was performed off the coast using output from ROMS (Regional Ocean Modeling System), forced under realistic winds obtained from weekly averaged ERS data. Temporal and spatial analysis yield information on the climatological characteristics of this region. en_ZA
