The Ohlanga River is a river in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, which empties into the Indian Ocean just north of Umhlanga, KwaZulu-Natal, north of Durban. The river has extensive reed beds in the estuary at its mouth, which is only 7 km further southwest from the mouth of the Mdloti River.
Presently this river is part of the Mvoti to Umzimkulu Water Management coopsifas.comy: South Africa. Abstract. Thirteen estuaries in the Eastern Cape Province, South Africa, were broadly categorised according to size and salinity distribution and were assigned to one of the following categories: permanently open estuaries having a strong salinity gradient between mouth and upper estuary, freshwater-deprived permanently open estuaries, medium-sized temporarily open/closed estuaries, Cited by: Fishes of SA Estuaries: of Ichthyology before it became a Research Facility of the National Research Foundation in and was renamed the South African Institute for Aquatic Biodiversity (SAIAB) in SAIAB 50 years - a celebration Read the book - SAIAB 50 years - The Directors' Cut.
This chapter provides an overview of the ecology and food web dynamics of southern African intermittently open/closed estuaries (IOCEs).
Intermittently open/closed estuaries experience periodic isolation from the ocean due to a sandbar at the mouth and account for some 71% of all estuaries along the southern African coopsifas.com: Pierre William Froneman.

ENGLISH ABSTRACT: This study investigates the berm crest elevation at South African Temporarily Open/Closed Estuaries (TOCE), as well as the processes involved in berm growth, and the drivers that contribute to variation in berm height among estuaries.
The relationship between wave runup elevation and maximum berm height at estuaries is coopsifas.com: Zane Booysen. The aim of this study was to obtain an understanding of the ecosystem functioning of selected estuaries on the east coast of South Africa and to represent their dynamics through ecosystem models.

Apr 12, · The majority of estuaries along the coastline of southern Africa are termed temporarily open/closed estuaries (TOCEs) and are closed off from the sea for varying periods by a sandbar which forms at the mouth.
It is therefore important to understand the processes occurring within TOCEs and their importance to fishes in order to make sound management recommendations.

Temporarily open/closed estuaries typically open to the sea due to freshwater inflow coupled with storm surge events. In Septemberin the absence of freshwater inflow, the mouth of the East Kleinemonde Estuary breached in response to a storm surge.
The mouth of the estuary closed the following day at a high level. Marine overwash events following the breach introduced large volumes of Cited by: The original idea of this book started when we were making a residual fluxes study of the Paranagua Coastal Lagoon (Brazil) near the colonial town of Guaraque~coopsifas.com the beautiful mangroves of this Brazilian National Park, between profile and profile, we wondered why South American estuaries were little known in the international arena.
