    The circular economy framework for human production and consumption is an alternative to the traditional, linear concept of ‘take, make, and dispose’. Circular economy (CE) principles comprise of ‘design out waste and ...
  • Mokoena, Refiloe; Mturi, Georges AJ; Maritz, Johan; Malherbe, Johan; O'Connell, Johannes S (CAPSA, 2019-10)
    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 ...
  • Smith, Marie E; Bernard, Stewart (Taylor and Francis Inc., 2020-02)
    The aquaculture industry of southern Africa faces environmental threats from harmful algal blooms (HABs), which have the potential to cause devastating economic losses (Pitcher et al., 2019). Satellite earth observation ...
  • Tedesco, P; Cula, J; Ménesguen, C; Penven, P; Krug, Marjolaine J (Brill, 2019-11)
    This study addresses the dynamics of the Agulhas inshore front in the submesoscale range upstream of 26 E. Submesoscale frontal eddies are observed in the vicinity of Port Elizabeth (26 E) from satellite images and in ...
  • Steyn, Maronel; Oberholster, Paul; Genthe, Bettina; Thwala, Melusi (The International Water Association (IWA), 2019-09)
    Phycoremediation makes use of macroalgae or microalgae and can be used to treat wastewater. This technique has the potential to be used as an alternative biomass source for bio-energy production. The current study utilizes ...
  • Lück-Vogel, Melanie (CSIR, 2019-09)
    In this presentation the legacy of the coastal flood and erosion risk assessments conducted from the National Coastal Assessment project and the Coastal Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment is explained and the way ...
  • Lück-Vogel, Melanie (The African Climate Risks Conference (ACRC) Secretariat, 2019-10)
    In South Africa, about 40% of the people are living within 60km of the Oceans' coasts, and approximately 60% of the South African economy depends on coastal natural resources and trade infrastructure such as ports. These ...
  • Todorovic, M; Jovanovic, Nebojsa (Wiley, 2020-04)
    Weather represents day-to-day atmospheric condition (e.g. air temperature, pressure, humidity, precipitation, sunshine hours, cloud cover, wind direction and speed, etc.) over a short term at a given place and time. Climate ...
  • Engelbrecht, Andre D; North, Brian C; Oboirien, Bilainu (Industrial Fluidization South Africa, 2017-10)
    Chemical-looping combustion (CLC) of coal has emerged as a clean coal technology that can potentially be applied for the efficient combustion of coal while producing flue gas that has a CO2 concentration of greater than ...
  • Williams, LL; Lück-Vogel, Melanie (Springer, 2020-03)
    Coastal zones are dynamic spaces where human activities and infrastructure are exposed to natural forces, climate change and extreme weather events such as storm surges. Coastal inundation is regarded as one of the most ...
  • Sloyan, BM; Wilkin, J; Hill, KL; Chidichimo, MP; Cronin, MF; Johannessen, JK; Krug, Marjolaine J; Lee, T; Oka, E; Karstensen, J (Frontiers Media S.A., 2019-08)
    Climate change and variability are major societal challenges, and the ocean is an integral part of this complex and variable system. Key to the understanding of the ocean’s role in the Earth’s climate system is the study ...
  • Moutier, William; Thomalla, Sandy J; Bernard, Stewart; Wind, G; Ryan-Keogh, Thomas J; Smith, Marie E (MDPI AG, 2019-07)
    The Southern Ocean (SO) is highly sensitive to climate change. Therefore, an accurate estimate of phytoplankton biomass is key to being able to predict the climate trajectory of the 21st century. In this study, MODerate ...
  • Burns, James (Stellenbosch University, 2019-12)
    The coastal zone is a dynamic environment that is regulated and influenced by natural ocean processes and anthropogenic phenomena. Beaches are important elements within the coastal zone and are highly valued for the ecosystem ...
  • Testor, P; De Young, B; Rudnick, DL; Glenn, S; Hayes, D; Lee, CM; Pattiaratchi, C; Krug, Marjolaine J; Nicholson, Sarah-Anne; Hill, K (Frontiers Media S.A., 2019-10)
