  • Robertson, I; Froyd, CA; Walsh, RPD; Newbery, DM; Woodborne, S; Ong, RC (John Wiley & Sons Ltd, 2004-10)
    In a first step to obtain a proxy record of past climatic events (including the El Ni (n) over tildeo-Southern Oscillation) in the normally a seasonal tropical environment of Sabah, a radial segment from a recently fallen ...
  • Cull, T; Vincent, K; Davis, C; Archer van Garderen, E (CSIR, 2011-11)
    This chapter is concerned with how we can respond to climate change in order to reduce its adverse impacts. Following international practice, these responses can broadly be grouped into mitigation (reduction in the causes ...
  • Debba, Pravesh (2008-10)
    A presentation was done at the Chinese Academy of Geological Science in October 2008 on optimal field sampling for both exploration targets and sampling for geochemicals in mine tailing areas
  • Hutchinson, K; Swart, S; Meijers, A; Ansorge, I; Speich, S (Wiley, 2016-05)
    An enhanced Altimetry Gravest Empirical Mode (AGEM), including both adiabatic and diabatic trends, is developed for the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) south of Africa using updated hydrographic CTD sections, Argo data, ...
  • Roux, FS (2013-07)
    This presentation focuses on the decay of orbital angular momentum entanglement in atmospheric turbulence.
  • Carter-Brown, Clinton (2017-07)
    Future energy systems will largely be based on Distributed Energy Resources (DER) –a combination of VRE, storage and demand response technologies. Technology and systems innovations are required to design, build and operate ...
  • Olwal, TO; Van Wyk, BJ; Djouani, K; Hamam, Y; Siarry, P; Ntlatlapa, N (SATNAC 2010, 2010-09)
    Multi-Radio Multi-Channel (MRMC) WMNs result in power control problems including interference, un-scalable connectivity and energy consumption. Several previous studies have focused on the single radio wireless configurations ...
  • Lehmann, CER; Archibald, SA; Hoffmann, WA; Bond, WJ (Wiley-Blackwell Publishers, 2011-07)
    We aimed to identify the limits of savanna across Africa, Australia and South America. We based our investigation on the rich history of hypotheses previously examined; that the limits of savanna are variously determined ...
  • Steenkamp, Lucia H; Brady, D (Formatex Publishers, 2010-06)
    The non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug naproxen is most effective as the single S-naproxen enantiomer. However, typical synthetic routes to naproxen yield the racemate of both the R and the S stereoisomers. Biocatalysts ...
  • Van der Merwe, A; Van Dyk, FE; Van Vuuren, JH (ORSSA: Operations Research Society of SA, 2011-12)
    Recent technological advances have had a major impact on the management of traditional wineries, giving rise to the prospect of computerised decision support with respect to a range of complex harvesting and wine making ...
  • Van Der Merwe, A; Van Dyk, E; Van Vuuren, J (Operations Research Society of South Africa (ORSSA) and Operations Research practice in Africa (ORPA), 2007-09)
    The goal of the study is to lend decision support to management a a wine cellar in three areas of expertise, with Wamakersvallei Winery serving as a special case study. This decision support system is to be delivered in ...
  • Meyer, IA; Marais, Mario A (2014-10)
    A number of factors complicate the ability to deliver sustainably on development interventions. Multiple role players are involved, the performance of implementation agencies are measured over the short- to medium term and ...
  • Lanz, EJ; Van Dyk, FE; Van Vuuren, JH (40th ORSSA Conference 2011, 2011-09)
    The mission of the Global Foodbanking Network is to work together to alleviate world hunger by developing national networks of foodbanks and strengthening foodbanking around the world. In the South African context, the ...
  • Turpin, SM; Marais, Mario A (Stellenbosch University Library and Information Service, 2004)
    This paper compares a number of theoretical models of decision-making with the way in which senior managers make decisions in practice. Six prominent decision-makers were interviewed about their own decision-making style ...
  • Uys, H; Biercuk, MJ; VanDevender, AP; Ospelkaus, C; Meiser, D; Ozeri, R; Bollinger, JJ (American Physical Society, 2010-11)
    The authors present theoretical and experimental studies of the decoherence of hyperfine ground-state superpositions due to elastic Rayleigh scattering of light off resonant with higher lying excited states. They demonstrate ...
  • Uys, H; Biercuk, M; Van Devender, AP; Ospelkaus, C; Meiser, D; Ozeri, R; Bollinger, JJ (SAIP 2010, 2010-09)
    This paper investigates the decoherence of superpositions of hyperfine states of 9Be+ ions due to spontaneous scattering of off-resonant light. It was found that, contrary to conventional wisdom, elastic Raleigh scattering ...
  • Roux, FS (CSIR, 2012-06)
    This report present the presentation on deconstructing quantum decoherence in atmospheric turbulence. The focus was on the classical and quantum scintillation, time vs propagation distance, current paradigm: Paterson model, ...
  • Ndlovu, GF; Asante, JKO; Roos, WD; Hillie, KT (SAIP, 2011-07)
    An Ultra-high Vacuum Variable Temperature Scanning Tunnelling Microscope was used to study the growth mechanism of Antimony on vicinal Cu polycrystalline samples. The STM data after deposition of 0.3 ML Sb at 300°C showed ...
  • Cronje, J (IVCNZ 2015 Image and Vision Computing, 2015-11)
    The work in this paper address the problem of removing non-uniform motion blur from a single image. The motion vector for an image patch is estimated by using a convolutional neural network (CNN). All the predicted motion ...
