oa East African Geographical Review - Influence of monsoons on movement of dhows along the East African coast
It has always been acknowledged that monsoons have a pronounced influence on the movement of dhows between the East African coast and the peripheral lands of the Arabian Sea. On the other hand, it has invariably been assumed that monsoons have little, if any, effect on the movement of dhows along the East African coast itself. This article sets out to test this common belief that monsoons have no influence on the movement of local dhows and thus complements the already published analysis on the impact of monsoons on seasonal dhows B.A. Datoo, 1970.
