Submerged shoreline sequences on the KwaZulu-Natal shelf : a comparison between two morphological settings.
Holocene shoreline sequences and associated shelf stratigraphy are described from a high gradient, high wave energy shelf offshore the central KwaZulu-Natal and northern KwaZulu-Natal coastlines. These are examined using ...
Defining the spectral characteristics of rocks within the Mambulu Complex, Natal Belt, South Africa.
Field and laboratory spectroscopy are sub-fields of remote sensing, where the radiometric data of materials are individually measured either where the materials occur in situ or in a controlled laboratory environment. Both ...
Seismic-stratigraphic models for late Pleistocene/Holocene incised valley systems on the Durban continental shelf.
This dissertation examines the Durban continental shelf of the east coast of South Africa from a seismic and sequence stratigraphic perspective. High resolution seismic data reveal eleven seismic Units (A-K) offshore ...
The geology and tectonic setting of the Shashe-Foley-Tonota area (Central Motloutse Complex), NE Botswana.
The well-developed NE-SW structural grain of the Shashe, Foley and Tonota (SFT) region is used to separate it from the NW-SE trending structures that characterise the Matsitama belt and adjacent area previously described ...
The geology of the Ngoye granite gneiss formation.
The Ngoye Granite Gneiss Formation is located in the Natal sector of the Proterozoic Namaqua-Natal Mobile Belt, about 10 km southwest of Empangeni. It forms a prominent east-west trending elongate whalebacked massif some ...
Hydrogeochemical and environmental isotope characterization of the CO₂ springs along the Bongwana Fault, its impact on fresh water resources and implications for carbon capture and storage (CCS) in South Africa.
Natural CO²-rich springs at the Bongwana area in Eastern South Africa emanate from three sites along an 80 km long North-South trending Bongwana Fault. The geological unit that outcrops along the extent of the Fault are ...
Structure and evolution of the Zinkwazi and Umdloti barrier spit and inlet systems along the KwaZulu- Natal coastline, South Africa.

Marine geology of the East London continental shelf.
This dissertation examines the marine geology of the continental shelf offshore East London, on the east coast of South Africa. High-resolution seismic, multibeam bathymetric and backscatter tools are employed to reveal ...
Seismic, geochemical and sedimentological characteristics of storm deposits from the Durban continental shelf, South Africa.
The Durban shelf is a wave-dominated, high energy setting, characterised by submerged shorelines at depths of ~60 m, backed to landward by low-relief backbarrier depressions. The exposure at the seafloor of a back-barrier/lagoon ...
A geochemical study of the Theta Reef of the Frankfort Mining Complex in the Sabie-Pilgrim's Rest Goldfield South Africa.
For over a century the Sabie-Pilgrim’s Rest Goldfield has been one of the most important gold producers in South Africa. The epigenetic gold deposits are situated at the eastern escarpment of the Eastern Transvaal ...
