South African research in the hydrological sciences : 2003 -2006 : IUGG report

Hughes, D.A. (2007) South African research in the hydrological sciences : 2003 -2006 : IUGG report. South African Journal of Science, 103 (9/10). pp. 415-418. 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 ecological Reserve, and investigating the likely consequences of climate change. Most of these studies have a strong emphasis on supporting the provisions of the National Water Act of 1998. Research programmes are benefiting from international and regional cooperation. In contrast, the lack of young scientists entering the field poses the greatest threat to hydrological research in South Africa.
