  • Groundwater
  • Borehole
Public domain borehole information in South Africa is generally stored in the National Groundwater Archive (NGA) and the Groundwater Resources Information Project (GRIP) databases of which both are centralized databases. The GRIP database is updated by the Department of Water and Sanitation, but only covers one of the nine provinces. The NGA on the other hand covers the entire country, however, there is a backlog of borehole information that needs to be captured, and it has limited time-series data.

  • Groundwater
  • Water use
  • Borehole
Groundwater is not private property, and the use of groundwater requires a water use license or a general authorization. This is imperative for most environmental impact assessments, requiring even ongoing monitoring for the foreseeable future.

The Groundwater Division and its partners are presenting a groundwater field school for postgraduate students and industry professionals. The four-day field school aims to cover appropriate field methods by Introducing or refreshing appropriate basic theory Exposing attendees to the actual field methods in real field conditions Analysing and interpreting field results based on appropriate guidelines, standards, laws, and requirements The field school comprise four modules and attendance can be p/day, p/theme or for the full package: Day 1: Investigation and Siting (hydrogeology and hydrostratigraphy; siting of

  • Environment
  • Ecosystems
  • Safety
Investigation for cemetery sites requires the detection i. of a wide range of different contaminant groups, ii. at typically very low concentrations (if present), iii. as well as natural and geological impacts on the proposed developments; and iv. with important safety and human and ecosystem health effects if undetected. The issues of internment and how we deal with the deceased in general transect disciplines of natural science, engineering, and social science. Given the sensitive nature of internment and the established notions of acceptable practice at an individual and personal level, assessment

  • Microplastics
  • Stormwater
  • Greywater
Microplastics are tiny particles (smaller than 5mm) found in the environment. They are synthetic polymers and are either produced in its microform to be utilized in personal care products and detergents or disintegrated from larger plastics or synthetic materials (e.g. recycled polyethylene terephthalate items), respectively known as primary or secondary microplastics.

  • Geophysics
  • Groundwater
Fieldwork & the focus on geophysics AT Receiver - Pseudo-Science or a method worth investigating. The Audio Magnetotelluric (AMT) signal is generally in the range of 1Hz - 20 kHz with its origin as spherics created by thunderstorms, magnetospheric noise, seismic events, etc. Historical AMT monitors up to five channels at each station, namely Ex Ey Hx Hy Hz. The EM field is a plane wave perpendicular to the ground surface, away from the field source.
