South African research in the hydrological sciences: 1999-2002

Hughes, D.A. and Ashton, P. and Gorgons, A. and Jewitt, G.P.W. and Schulze, R. and Smithers, J. and Pegram, G. and Dube, R. (2003) South African research in the hydrological sciences: 1999-2002. South African Journal of Science, 99 (7 & 8). pp. 394-397. ISSN 0038-2353




The principal activities of South African researchers in hydrology and water resources during the reporting period have been concerned with ground- and surface-water interactions, rainfall-runoff modelling, the establishment of improved regional water resource databases, the management of transboundary water resource systems, the ecological reserve, and quantifying the impacts of streamflow reduction activities. Most of these studies have focused on supporting the radically new provisions of the National Water Act of 1998.
