Sea-surface temperature measurements taken during the course of biological research along the coast of the eastern Cape Province have revealed that, on occasion, large temperature differences, occur in the waters around 'prominent coastal headlands. As such occurrences can have significant biological implications, sea-surface temperatures on either side of Cape Recife (Fig. 1) were monitored to determine the nature and frequency of this temperature variability and are reported here.
