Towards improved parameter estimation in streamflow predictions using the ACRU model.
An unresolved problem in hydrology has been to establish relationships between catchment attributes and the flow characteristics of the stream. Such information is commonly sought to improve streamflow predictions, often ...
Approaches to modelling catchment-scale forest hydrology.
South African commercial plantations occupy an estimated 1.5 million hectares of the country and as the demands for timber products increase, this area is expected to increase. However, further expansion is limited, not ...
Predicting emissions using an on-road vehicle performance simulator.
South Africa is coming under increasing pressure to conform to the rest of the world in terms of emissions regulations. The pressure is caused by a number of factors: international organisations requiring local companies ...
Developing a real time hydraulic model and a decision support tool for the operation of the Orange River.
This thesis describes the development of a decision support tool to be used in the operation of Vanderkloof Dam on the Orange River so that the supply of water to the lower Orange River can be optimised. The decision support ...
Evaluation of a methodology to translate rainfall forecasts into runoff forecasts for South Africa.
South Africa experiences some of the lowest water resource system yields in the world as a result of the high regional variability of rainfall and runoff. Population growth and economic development are placing increasing ...
