    For Cape Town - the weather is all about the wind, and that wind is all about what time of the year it is. The two ocean currents that flow along our km coastline are a major influencing factor on our weather and climate. The cold Benguela Current flows north along our West Coast and the warm Agulhas Current flows south along our East Coast. The Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem runs along southwestern Africa and the coastline of Angola, Namibia and South Africa. While each nation had its own laws and management systems governing marine resources, they were not compatible and the countries lacked the resources, expertise and legal tools to promote effective management.

    Agulhas Current, surface oceanic current that forms the western boundary current of the southern Indian flows southward along the southeast coast of Mozambique and the coast of South Africa before turning eastward to join the flow from Africa to Australia. A small part of Agulhas water apparently continues westward around the Cape of Good Hope into the Atlantic Ocean. This is a book which examines much of what we know and also what we don’t know about the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem and its inherent variability. Building on recent work and exciting findings about the predictability of the Benguela and other coastal upwelling ecosystems, the book takes a look towards the future and highlights Format: Hardcover.

Benguela Current, oceanic current that is a branch of the West Wind Drift of the Southern Hemisphere. It flows northward in the South Atlantic Ocean along the west coast of southern Africa nearly to the Equator before merging with the westward-flowing Atlantic South Equatorial Current.

The prevailing southerly and southwesterly winds produce upwelling of water with a cool temperature, a. The Benguela Current / b ɛ ŋ ˈ ɡ ɛ l ə / is the broad, northward flowing ocean current that forms the eastern portion of the South Atlantic Ocean current extends from roughly Cape Point in the south, to the position of the Angola-Benguela front in the north, at around 16°S.

The current is driven by the prevailing south easterly trade winds. Inshore of the Benguela Current. The BCLME The Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) extends from east of the Cape of Good Hope, northwards to Cabinda Province in Angola and encompasses the full extent of Namibia's marine environment.

It is a major coastal upwelling ecosystem and an important centre of marine biodiversity and marine food production. The Benguela Current Commission (BCC) is a multi-sectoral inter-governmental, initiative of Angola, Namibia and South Africa.

It promotes the vision of the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem (BCLME) sustaining human and ecosystem well-being for generation after generation.

In fact, the effect of locally important oceanographic features such as the offshore autumnal transport on the distribution of planktonic cnidarians has long been overlooked in this region.

Because of this, the present studyCited by: 3. Despite their ecological, economic and medical relevance, very little information is available on the distribution of planktonic cnidarians, this being particularly true for some regions of the ocean such as the Gulf of Mexico.

In the southern Benguela, three upwelling centres can be distinguished: the Namaqua (30°S), Cape Columbine (33°S) and Cape Peninsula (34°S), where upwelling is most common during spring and summer (Nelson and Hutchings, ).Cited by:   Pagès, F., J.-M.

Most hake species of the world are important both ecologically and commercially, supporting large fisheries (Alheit and Pitcher, ).Two of the three southern African species, Merluccius capensis Castelnau, and xus Franca, —referred to as Cape hakes—are dominant components of the northern and southern Benguela upwelling sub-systems and Cited by: Benguela Current, one of the world’s most important.

The Benguela Current Commission, or BCC, is a multi-sectoral inter-governmental, initiative of Angola, Namibia and South promotes the sustainable management and protection of the Benguela Current Large Marine Ecosystem, or BCLME.

The BCC was established in January through the signing of an Interim Agreement between the governments of Angola, Namibia and South Africa. In the present work, possible long-term changes in the planktonic cnidarian community were investigated by analyzing (1) species and community spatial distribution patterns, (2) variations in abundance and (3) changes in species richness during three mesoscale surveys representative of the climatic and anthropogenic changes that have occurred during the last three decades (years:Cited by: 1.

The Benguela Current is driven by the prevailing South Easterly trade winds of the South Atlantic Ocean. Inshore of the Benguela Current proper, the south easterly winds cause coastal upwelling, forming the Benguela Upwelling System.

The principal upwelling center is situated offshore the Lüderitz area in southern Namibia. ABSTRACT.

The COAST Project is working to showcase some of the emerging best practices and examples that seek to demonstrate the fact that sustainable coastal tourism in Africa can indeed be achieved.

In this Newsletter Edition, we showcase the work of the Benguela Current Commission (BCC), a multi-sectoral inter-governmental initiative of Angola, Namibia and South Africa.The Benguela system is one of the four major eastern boundary upwelling systems of the world.
