  • Ziehn, T; Nickless, A; Rayner, PJ; Law, RM; Roff, G; Fraser, P (European Geosciences Union, 2014-09)
    This paper describes the generation of optimal atmospheric measurement networks for determining carbon dioxide fluxes over Australia using inverse methods. A Lagrangian particle dispersion model is used in reverse mode ...
  • Van Wyk, Llewellyn V (Alive2Green, 2014-10)
    The development and maintenance of infrastructure is crucial to improving economic growth and quality of life (WEF 2013). Urban infrastructure typically includes bulk services such as water, sanitation and energy (typically ...
  • Godfrey, Linda K (Alive2green, 2014-11)
    The Waste Sector, as with many sectors of the economy, is responding to the call to transition to a Green Economy. Globally, waste management is changing from one of ‘collect-transport-dispose’, to one of ‘secondary resource ...
  • Estuarine and Coastal Research Unit, ECRU (CSIR, National Research Institute for Oceanology, 1981-06)
    The state of knowledge of the Groen is poor. The area, being remote, has received little attention in the past and the bulk of information in this report originates from the Estuarine and Coastal Research Unit (ECRU) survey. ...
  • Harmse, M; Von, HJ (Cooperative Scientific Programmes: CSIR, 1977-09)
    The soils of the Nylsvley Nature Reserve are classified according to the binomial system and mapped on a scale of 1:5 000. 17 soil forms and 34 soil series are described. The main soil forms within the Savanna Ecosystem ...
  • Morant, PD; Bickerton, IB (CSIR, National Research Institute for Oceanology, 1983-06)
    Little is known of the early history of the area surrounding the Groot and Sout estuaries. The densely forested terrain dissected by deep gorges caused the area to be avoided by early travellers who used the inland route ...
  • Morant, PD (CSIR, National Research Institute for Oceanology, 1983-12)
    The Great Brak estuary has been endowed with great scenic beauty and recreational potential. The estuary and environs thus offer a great challenge for progressive development with the needs of existing industries and ...
  • Goldbach, OD (CSIR, 1991-10)
    This report looks at the ground motion from 24 small magnitude seismic events recorded at various points inside a backfilled stope. The in-stope ground motion is compared to that recorded at an off-reef site. The seismic ...
  • Osunmakind, IO; Ndhlovu, T (2009-11)
    In this paper, collective intelligence of the Emergent Situation Awareness (ESA) technology is proposed as a supportive strategy for autonomous robotic navigation. The ability to reveal uncertainties over time on flexed ...
  • Hobbs, PJ (South African Institute for Engineering and Environmental Geologists, 2008-11)
    The significance and importance of groundwater level data in a karst environment, whilst acknowledged by geotechnical engineers and engineering geologists, is often not afforded the recognition it deserves. Within the ambit ...
  • Tredoux, G; Cave, L; Engelbrecht, P (Water Research Commission, 2004)
    Groundwater pollution is a worldwide phenomenon with potentially disastrous consequences. Prevention of pollution is the ideal approach. However, in practice groundwater quality monitoring is the main tool for timely ...
  • Bugan, Richard DH; Jovanovic, Nebojsa; May, F; Dzikiti, Sebinasi (2011-09)
    Groundwater recharge is the basis for accurate estimation of groundwater resources, for determining the modes of water allocation and groundwater resource susceptibility to climate change. Accurate estimations of groundwater ...
  • Rusinga, F; Taigbenu, AE (Water Research Commission, 2005-01)
    Judicious management of a groundwater system requires an understanding of its hydrogeology and response to various recharge and pumping stresses. However, in developing countries, groundwater resource evaluations are ...
  • Frost, B; Mayers, J; Roberts, S (IIED & CSIR, 2003)
    Certification has developed more rapidly in South African forestry than in most countries of the South. This report looks at the motivations behind the spread of certification in the South African forest and wood products ...
  • Byaruhanga, YB; Bester, BH; Watson, TG (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1999-06)
    The growth and survival of B. cereus, a known pathogen commonly found in cereals, during lactic acid fermentation of mageu, a sour maize beverage, was studied. In the mageu base inoculated with both the starter culture and ...
  • Oliphant, CJ; Arendse, CJ; Knoesen, D; Muller, TFG; Prins, S; Malgas, GF (Elsevier, 2011-05)
    The authors report on the growth kinetics of hydrogenated nanocrystalline silicon, with specific focus on the effects of the deposition time and hydrogen dilution on the nano-structural properties. The growth in the ...
  • Gouws, GJ; Muller, RJ; Bowden, RS (Elsevier Science BV, 1993-05)
    The suitability of various buffer layer structures on (100) GaAs for (CdHg)Te growth by organometallic vapour phase epitaxy (OMVPE) was investigated. The preferred epitaxial orientation of (100) GaAs/ (lll) CdTe was found ...
  • Komakech Otim, C (University of KwaZulu Natal, 2008-12)
