Defining small catchment runoff responses using hillslope hydrological process observations.
The Umzimvubu catchment on the eastern coastal escarpment of South Africa is sensitive to anthropogenic influences,with commercial and subsistence agriculture, irrigation, domestic and rural settlements and forestry ...
An adaptation of the SCS-ACRU hydrograph generating technique for application in Eritrea.
Many techniques have been developed over the years in first world countries for the estimation of flood hydrographs from small catchments for application in design, management and operations of water related issues. However, ...
Towards improved parameter estimation in streamflow predictions using the ACRU model.
An unresolved problem in hydrology has been to establish relationships between catchment attributes and the flow characteristics of the stream. Such information is commonly sought to improve streamflow predictions, often ...
Hydrological modelling applications for water resources management in the Mkomazi Catchment.
Predictions that water shortages will constrain economic growth in South Africa by 2025 have led to increased concerns among water resource managers that there is a need for comprehensive water management strategies. To ...
Estimation of the hydrological response to invasive alien plants in the upper Blyde River catchment.
The change in total evaporation through alteration of vegetative cover is a major influence on catchment hydrology. The transformation of grassland and scrub habitats to commercial tree plantations, as well as the uncontrolled ...
The hydrosalinity module of ACRU agrohydrological modelling system (ACRUsalinity) : module development and evaluation.
Water is characterised by both its quantity (availability) and its quality. Salinity, which is one of the major water quality parameters limiting use of a wide range of land and water resources, refers to the total dissolved ...
