The potential of micro-hydropower generation in the Inkomati River Catchment in Mozambique.
Hydropower is the leading source of renewable energy. It provides more than 97% of all electricity generated by renewable sources internationally. Small hydropower plants (SHPs) can be an alternative and a complement to ...
The water balance of vermiculite covers on mining wastes in a semi-arid environment.
Deposition of large quantities of mining waste is an activity that can have a negative impact on surface and ground water resources. These impacts necessitate reclamation and amelioration of the wastes through various ...
An assessment of scale issues related to the configuration of the ACRU model for design flood estimation
There is a frequent need for estimates of design floods by hydrologists and engineers for the design of hydraulic structures. There are various techniques for estimating these design floods which are dependent largely on ...
An assessment of satellite derived total evaporation data as a data source to the ACRU hydrological model.
Hydrological models and tools are often used as decision support systems to inform water resources management. The successful application of these systems is largely dependent on the quality of data being incorporated into ...
Detecting and assessing the impacts of outlier events and data availability on design rainfall and flood estimation in South Africa.
Accurate Design Rainfall Estimation (DRE) and Design Flood Estimation (DFE) require long periods of quality-controlled data for the planning, design, operation, and improved flood risk assessment of hydraulic structures. ...
Assessing the performance of techniques for disaggregating daily rainfall for design flood estimation in South Africa.
Design Flood Estimation (DFE) and other hydrological modelling methods are used to limit the risk of failure and ensure the safe design of infrastructure and for the planning and management of water resources. The temporal ...
Water-use of commercial bamboo species in KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa.
Abstract available in pdf.
Assessing the effects of site preparation treatments on erosion processes and sediment yield on a commercial Eucalyptus plantation: case study at Two Streams, KwaZulu-Natal.
Soil erosion monitoring and modelling is critical in the face of climate change, as erosion is detrimental to environmental and human health. It reduces soil productivity through degradation, compromises water quality ...
An adaptive operational water resources management framework for the Crocodile River catchment, South Africa.
River catchments are complex STEEP (Social, Technological, Economic, Environmental, Political) systems requiring an integrated and adaptive approach to their water resources management with input from diverse stakeholders ...
An evaluation of priority and fractional methods of water allocation in the Sand River catchment, South Africa.
The development and apportionment of water resources is a critical issue, both globally and locally in South Africa. This is particularly true in the development and allocation among states sharing watercourse systems. ...
