  • Arabi, S; Newman, Brent K; Weerts, Steven P (2012-10)
    The impact of wastewater discharge on the marine environment requires careful monitoring. The CSIR’s Marine Outfalls Monitoring Programme has a history of 45 years, and continues to build capacity in the field of marine ...
  • Moldan, AGS; Ridder, JH (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1989)
    The debate over the degradation of coastal waters by sewage, oil and industrial wastes, continues. To provide a wide-ranging but concise examination of this topic, the Foundation for Research Development of the CSIR organized ...
  • Mariotti, V; Bopp, L; Tagliabue, A; Kageyama, M; Swingedouw, D (European Geosciences Union, 2012-10)
    Marine sediments records suggest large changes in marine productivity during glacial periods, with abrupt variations especially during the Heinrich events. Here, we study the response of marine biogeochemistry to such an ...
  • Van der Elst, R (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1990-01)
    This report contains papers presented at a symposium on marine recreational fishing: resource usage, management and research held on 22 and 23 May 1989 in the East London Museum under the auspices of the South African Deep ...
  • Bowmaker, AP; van der Zee, D; Ridder, JH (National Scientific Programmes Unit: CSIR, 1987)
    A two day mini-symposium and workshop held in Durban in February 1986 and attended by 70 marine scientists from Natal and KwaZulu is reported on. Summaries of 84 presentations are given, separated into relevant sections. ...
  • Taljaard, Susan; Botes, WAM (Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 1995)
    In South Africa the ultimate goal in water quality management is to keep the water resources suitable for all ''beneficial uses''. Beneficial uses provide a basis for the derivation of water quality guidelines, which, for ...
  • Dabrowski, James M; De Villiers, Johan P (Elsevier, 2015-05)
    A generative model for modelling maritime vessel behaviour is proposed. The model is a novel variant of the dynamic Bayesian network (DBN). The proposed DBN is in the form of a switching linear dynamic system (SLDS) that ...
  • Maspero, EL; Van Dyk, FE; Ittmann, HW (Sabinet online, 2008-11)
    As a direct result of the 9-11 New York attack all modes of freight and passenger transportation were scrutinised for vulnerabilities. Over 90% of international trade takes place via sea transport for at least some part ...
  • Murray, J; Gulumian, M; Nelson, G; Darwin, L; Borm, P; Castranova, V; Donaldson, K; Vallyathan, V (2004-03)
    The South African gold mining industry recently joined the World Health Organisation Global Campaign to Eliminate Silicosis. Subsequently, a number of research projects are being focused on the evaluation of silica dust ...
  • Musee, N; Lorenzen, L (South African Water Research Commission, 2013-01)
    Market dynamics offer positive (incentive) or negative (disincentive) feedback loops that shape the research needs for, or certain aspects of, a particular technology. Our case study results illustrate how market dynamics ...
  • Van Rensburg, JR; Smit, D; Veldsman, A (2007-05)
    This paper is part of a series dealing with the “Expansion of European Network of Living Labs (ENoLL) to Africa - Opportunities, Synergies, Benefits and Limitations”. It provides an overview of the Sekhukhune Rural Living ...
  • Van Wyk, Llewellyn V (Alive2Green, 2015-08)
    Significant pressure is being brought to bear on material manufacturers to green the materials and products produced by industry in general – and the construction sector is no exception, for good reason. The construction ...
  • Mahamood, RM; Akinlabi, ET; Shukla, M; Pityana, S (International Association of Engineers, 2013-02)
    The economy of using Laser Metal Deposition (LMD) process in the manufacturing of aerospace parts depends on the right processing parameters. LMD is an additive manufacturing technology capable of producing complex parts ...
  • Jansen van Rensburg, GJ; Kok, S; Wilke, DN (2012-07)
    Tests were done on the compressive behaviour of different metal matrix composite materials. These extremely hard engineering materials consist of ceramic particles embedded in a metal alloy binder. Due to the high stiffness ...
  • Ampofo-Anti, N (Alive2green Publishers, 2010-11)
    The building life cycle demands both operational and embodied energy. It has been estimated that in conventional buildings, operational energy represents approximately 80-90% of total life cycle energy, while embodied ...
  • Materials 
    Van Wyk, Llewellyn V (Green Building, 2009-02)
    The construction industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, and the production and harvesting of raw materials for building purposes occurs on a world-wide scale. Environmental issues are becoming a major world topic, ...
  • Butgereit, L (Assciation for Mathematics Education of South Africa, 2007-07)
    Homework is a necessary evil in the path of learning mathematics at school. Mathematics homework is traditionally seen as difficult and boring. In the case of difficult homework, “math clubs” and “math extra lessons” are ...
  • Butgereit, L (2007-04)
    It is common cause that the average mathematics mark among high school learners in South Africa has declined. Traditional “math clubs” and “math extra lessons” often do not work because of a number of reasons including 1) ...
  • Botha, LR; Bollig, C; Esser, D; Jacobs, Cobus; Preussler, D (South African Institute of Physics, 2009-07)
    A mathematical model was developed that accurately predicts the performance of an optically pumped HBr laser. Relatively high conversion efficiency was achieved. Tm pumped Ho:YLF is a viable source for pumping HBr laser, ...
  • Gouws, JF; Majozi, T (Water Research Council, 2008-07)
