In this paper, the recent research will be reviewed. An assessment will be made of the tropospheric thermodynamic structure and atmospheric transport fields that govern the large-scale horizontal and vertical regional transfer of air, trace gases and aerosols over and out of southern Africa. Particular attention will be focused on the phenomenon of recirculation and how this may affect atmospheric transports out of the subcontinent. The implications of large-scale transport for hemispheric and global change will be addressed
