Introduction
Postdoctoral fellow at SAEON and the university of Cape Town. Interested in the dynamics of the tropical oceans particularly extreme events in the South West Indian Ocean. Currently investigating the role of the upper ocean in climate variability, how changes in the subsurface ocean can influence the intensification of tropical cyclones and enhance the severity of marine heatwaves

The unique geography of the Mozambique Channel largely results from the mountainous island of Madagascar, the fourth largest island in the world by area, extending 13 degrees of latitude. Madagascar, which forms the eastern boundary of the Mozambique Channel, is the only example worldwide of a large tropical island situated just offshore from a tro...

Marine heatwaves (MHWs) are becoming more frequent and intense around the world leading to long-term impacts on ecosystems and subsequent socioeconomic consequences. To date, MHWs have not been considered in the Mozambique Channel, a highly biodiverse region with sensitive coral reefs. An assessment of MHW metrics here shows that these events tend...

During summer 2018/2019, Mozambique was devastated by Idai and Kenneth, the first time two Intense Status tropical cyclones have ever made landfall here. The season broke numerous records for the Southwest Indian Ocean (the greatest deaths, the largest damage, and numbers of Intense Status cyclones and tropical storms). Kenneth, which is the strong...

Track and intensity are key aspects of tropical cyclone behaviour. Intensity may be impacted by the upper-ocean heat content relevant for TC intensification (known as Tdy) and barrier layer thickness (BLT). Here, the variability of Tdy and BLT in the South West Indian Ocean and their relationships with tropical cyclones are investigated. It is show...
