    Performance grade specifications for bituminous binders focus on the evaluation of bitumen properties based on the loading and environmental conditions under which the material will be subjected to in the field. The ...
  • Davis, C; Archer, Emma RM; Maserumule, R; Stevens, N; Sinden, LA (The Department of Science and Technology, 2010-04)
    This study will draw on the findings of a significant amount of research that has already taken place in the area. There is a keen desire amongst diverse stakeholders to access global change information (for example, the ...
  • Oelofse, Suzanna HH (2019-05)
    Food waste is any food, and inedible parts of food, removed from the food supply chain to be recovered or disposed (incl. composted, crops ploughed in/not harvested, anaerobic digestion, bio-energy production, co-generation, ...
  • Lotz, M; Brent, A; Steyn, H (Faculty of Economic and Management Sciences (University of Pretoria), 2009)
    Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects have additional technical, financial and regulatory requirements that are not fully addressed by classic project management approaches. Research has been done on individual novel ...
  • Bopape, Mary-Jane M; Engelbrecht, F; Randall, DA; Landman, WA (AOSIS OpenJournals, 2014-09)
    Recent advances in supercomputing have made feasible the numerical integration of high-resolution cloud resolving models (CRMs). CRMs are being used increasingly for high-resolution operational numerical weather prediction ...
  • Harris, LR; Bessinger, M; Dayaram, A; Holness, S; Kirkman, S; Livingstone, TC; Lombard, AT; Lück-Vogel, Melanie; Pfaff, M; Sink, KJ; Skowno, AL; Van Niekerk, Lara (Elsevier, 2019-09)
    Coasts are among our most valuable natural assets but are under intense pressure from human use and climate change. Despite this, coasts – as a coherent ecological unit – have been poorly included in conservation plans, ...
  • Sivakumar, V; Tesfaye, M; Alemu, W; Moema, D; Sharma, Ameeth; Bollig, C; Mengistu, G (2009-08)
    This presentation provides aerosol measurement over Southern Africa, using LIDAR, satellite and sun-photometer. Aerosol formation and processes are also given.
  • Williams, CA; Hanan, NP; Neff, JC; Scholes, RJ; Berry, JA; Denning, AS; Baker, DF (BioMed Central Ltd, 2007-03)
    The African continent has a large and growing role in the global carbon cycle, with potentially important climate change implications. However, the sparse observation network in and around the African continent means that ...
  • Scott, L; Holmgren, K; Talma, AS; Woodborne, S; Vogel, JC (Acad Science South Africa, 2003-09)
    Spring accumulations are valuable and rare sources for Quaternary pollen analysis and palaeoenvironmental research in South Africa. It is important to optimize their dating, which is sometimes complicated by root contamination. ...
  • Murambadoro, M; Mambo, J (Platform for African – European Partnership in Agricultural Research for Development, 2014-09)
    The South African government has since independence taken steps to redress land rights for communities that were dispossessed of such rights as a result of past discriminatory laws and practices during apartheid. A great ...
  • Lötter, Johanna M (CSIR, 2017-10)
    The agricultural sector in southern Africa needs to produce enough food to feed its current population of 277 million and future predicted population of over 300 million by 2025 (United Nations ESA, 2015). All of this must ...
  • Rouault, Marjolaine J (2011-11)
    Satellite remote sensing datasets including more than 6 years of high frequency Sea Surface Temperature (SST) imagery as well as surface current observations derived from 18 years of merged-altimetry and over 2 years of ...
  • Diab, RD (Elsevier, 2011)
    The contribution of the road transportation sector to emissions of air pollutants and greenhouse gases is a growing concern in developing countries. Emission control measures implemented within this sector can have varying ...
  • Thambiran, Tirusha; Padayachi, Yerdashin R (AFRICAN SUN MeDIA, 2017-12)
    This chapter provides an overview of the latest developments in air quality management and air pollution trends in South Africa. The critical issues of managing air quality in the context of climate change and risk and ...
  • Thambiran, Tirusha; Diab, RD (Elsevier, 2011-10)
    Industries in Durban, South Africa, are a major source of air pollutant emissions and large users of fossil fuel based energy. Durban's energy strategy prioritises energy efficiency at industries as a key action, whilst ...
  • Thambiran, Tirusha; Diab, RD (2010-10)
    The relationship between air quality and climate change provides a scientific basis for developing integrative policies. Emission control measures implemented can have varying counteracting influences, simultaneously ...
  • Winkler, H; Altieri, K; Clarke, S; Garland, Rebecca M; Kornelius, G; Meas, M (CSIR, 2016)
    Shale gas development (SGD) presents opportunities and risks with regards to air pollution and greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. There is a potential opportunity to reduce emissions, if shale gas replaces ‘dirtier’ (more ...
  • Garland, Rebecca M; Naidoo, Mogesh; Sibiya, Bhekizizwe A; Oosthuizen, Rietha (National Association for Clean Air, South Africa (NACA), 2017-05)
