An adaptation of the SCS-ACRU hydrograph generating technique for application in Eritrea.
Many techniques have been developed over the years in first world countries for the estimation of flood hydrographs from small catchments for application in design, management and operations of water related issues. However, ...
Linking the hydrological, geomorphological and sociological aspects of wetlands in rural areas : a case study based in the Craigieburn wetland microcatchment in the Sand River catchment.
In many of the rural areas of South Africa local communities rely on wetland resources for daily living. For a symbiotic relationship to exist between these communities and the wetlands, the wetlands must be utilised in a ...
A distributed sediment delivery ratio concept for sediment yield modelling.
Identifying areas of the hillslope that are most sensitive to soil erosion and contribute significantly to sediment yield is a primary concern in environmental protection and conservation. Therefore the ability to predict ...
Estimation of vapour pressure and solar radiation in South Africa.
Vapour pressure (interchangeably referred to as atmospheric humidity) and solar radiation data are, for different reasons, difficult data to obtain in South Africa. Relative humidity measuring instruments (from which vapour ...
Performance of irrigation and water management systems in the lowveld of Zimbabwe.
In order to assess the performance of water management approaches and irrigation systems used by the sugar industry in the Lowveld of Zimbabwe, a sugarcane yield and irrigation systems simulation model was developed. The ...
