Nearshore morphological changes and their relation to wave-induced forcing at Isipingo embayment, KwaZulu-Natal.
The nearshore zone is one of the most active sedimentary environments on the continental shelf, frequently impacted by energetic wave conditions and storm–generated waves and flows. Despite its proximity to the beach and ...
Foraminiferal distribution in unconsolidated sediment associated with a marginal coral reef in South Africa.

The geology and geochemistry of the Rooi Rand Dyke Swarm.
The Jurassic Rooi Rand dolerite dyke swarm was emplaced sub-parallel to the Lebombo Monocline during the initial stages of Gondwana breakup. The dykes extend northwards from the southern Lebombo region in northern ...
Mechanisms of sill and dyke intrusion.
Mechanisms of sill and dyke intrusion require an understanding of fracture growth,stress distributions and intensities, dilation,intrusion rates, hydraulic pressure,host-rock effects,en echelon fracture arrays,and flow ...
Seismic stratigraphy of the northern KwaZulu-Natal upper continental margin.
This study presents the interpretation of Edo-Western and Sparker seismic geophysical data acquired on the northern KwaZulu-Natal upper continental margin by various organisations since 1981. Five seismic sequences are ...
Palaeoenvironments of the Estcourt formation (Beaufort Group), KwaZulu-Natal.
At present the Karoo Basin covers approximately 20 000 km2. It is a large intracratonic basin which, from Carboniferous to Jurassic times, was infilled with a succession of sediments ranging from glacial deposits to those ...
The geology and rock mass quality of the Cenozoic Kalahari Group, Nchwaning Mine Northern Cape.
With the extension of the Nchwaning Mine shaft complex in the Northern Cape Province, various geological and geotechnical complications needed to be identified in order to ensure correct use of tunnelling methods and ...
The genesis of the quartz-sericite schists of the Toggekry Formation, Nondweni Greenstone Belt, South Africa.
The aim of this study was to investigate the origin of sulphide-bearing quartz sericite-schists of the Toggekry Formation in the Archaean Nondweni greenstone belt (NGB) in the SE Kaapvaal craton, and to compare them with ...
The bathymetry, sedimentology and seismic stratigraphy of Lake Sibaya- Northern KwaZulu-Natal.
The morphology of Lake Sibaya is a product of an ancient fluvial system that drained a coastal landscape dominated by aeolian processes. The sedimentary processes within the lake are driven by wind generated currents. ...
Geotechnical characterization and slope stability analyses of the Town Bush Valley, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa.
The construction of settlements over zones of instability is increasing the impact of disasters across the world both in developed and developing nations. Many areas in the greater Pietermaritzburg region in South Africa, ...
