Sustainable utilisation of Table Mountain Group aquifers
(University of the Western Cape, 2010)
The Table Mountain Group (TMG) Formation is the lowest member of the Cape Supergroup which consists of sediments deposited from early Ordovician to early Carboniferous times, approximately between 500 and 340 million years ...
The establishment of the long-term rainfall trends in the annual rainfall patterns in the Jonkershoek Valley, Western Cape, South Africa
(University of the Western Cape, 2008)
The overall aim of this project was to establish whether there is a long-term decline of rainfall collected in rainfall gauges within the Jonkershoek Valley that have the longest and best quality records.
Application Of environmental tracer methods to conceptualize groundwater recharge, West Coast, South Africa
(University of the Western Cape, 2019)
Drought and climate change will have adverse consequence for freshwater resources in water stressed South Africa. Diminishing surface water reserves increases the demand to exploit groundwater resources. The drought ...
Geomorphic analysis of river character and behaviour in three semi-arid, mountainous catchments in the Eastern Cape, South Africa
(University of Western Cape, 2019)
The analysis of what controls why rivers are the way they are, and how and why they change is crucial in predicting river dynamics and deriving classification systems that can assist management. A variety of factors control ...
Spatial modelling of invasive species distribution in water-limited environments using remotely sensed data and climatic scenarios in the Heuningnes catchment, South Africa
(University of Western Cape, 2020)
The occurrence and spread of Invasive Alien Plants (IAPs) is a threat to global water resources and natural ecosystems due to high water use rates. With the current climate change projections and their ability to survive ...
Hydrogeophysical characterization of coastal aquifers for solution-based modeling, West Coast, South Africa
(University of Western Cape, 2021)
The need to improve groundwater security remains critical especially in urban areas where demand for groundwater as an alternative source of water supply increases. Declining trends in availability of surface water because ...
