Two atmospheric surges near the northern Mozambique Channel (on 17 June and 3 July 1977) were probed from Nairobi eastwards to the coast and then south from 1 S to 8 S along 41 E. Offshore the former day was characterized by deep south-south-easterlies or south-easterlies, squalls, and rain-and the latter day by shallow south-south-easterlies overlain by south-westerlies and fair weather cumulus. In both cases meridional mass fluxes from two stations, Port Elizabeth and Dar-es-Salaam, were computed. They showed that the latter station lags the former by as much as four days| however, its meridional mass flux is double the former. (JPB).
