Abstract:

This study is centered on the Mozambique Channel between Mozambique in southeast Africa and the island of Madagascar. The study limits extend from 5 deg S to 35 deg S and 31 deg E to 55 deg E, thus allowing a small overlap between this study and the one for the Southern African Waters. Most emphasis was placed on the marine areas, with only a few coastal station summaries included in the text and final section of this publication. Keywords Marine climatology Madagascar Channels water ways Meteorological data Oceanographic data Seasonal variations.
