Short summary
Mesoscale datasets are used to study coastal gradients in the marine climate and oceanography of False Bay, south of Cape Town. Building on past work, satellite and ocean–atmosphere reanalyses are used to gain new insights into the mean structure, circulation and meteorological features. HYCOM v3 hindcasts represent a coastward reduction of mixing that enhances stratification and productivity in False Bay during summer.
