Report describing the ocean numerical model that has been created to assist the research on super-group sightings in the South African West coast. Since 2011, large assemblages of humpback whales, called super-groups, have been observed in the Southern Benguela in spring. The ocean numerical model CROCO is being used to simulate the main oceanographic patterns and link the sightings to changes in the general circulation and other environmental conditions.
