Effects Of Dolerite Intrusions On The Geohydrology Of Upper Karoo Sediments In The Elundini Area, South Africa

The Karoo Supergroup has a hydrogeological regime which is largely controlled by Jurassic dolerite dyke and sill complexes. The study area is located in the north-eastern interior of the Eastern Cape Province,  close  to  the  Lesotho  border.  The  sedimentary  rocks  of  the  upper  Karoo  constitute fractured and intergranular aquifers, due to relatively hydro-conductive lithologies.

The Relation Between South African Geology And Geohydrology

Groundwater in South Africa is an essential source of potable water for rural communities, farms and towns. Semi-arid conditions of South Africa, a growing population and surface water resources almost entirely being exploited to their limits, increase  the demand for groundwater resources. Therefore,  the  relation  between  the  geology  and  geohydrology  of  South  Africa  becomes  an important tool in locating groundwater resources that can provide sustainable quantities of water for South Africans.

Airborne And Ground Geophysical Surveys To Investigate The Deep Geology And Geohydrology In The Beaufort West Area, Western Karoo, South Africa

A geoscientific research project is underway in the Western Karoo Basin near Beaufort West, South Africa. This area has been earmarked for possible gas exploration. The aim of the project is to improve the understanding of the deeper aquifer systems of the Karoo Basin to better predict potential impacts of geo-resource exploration activities on the deep groundwater systems. This paper reports on the airborne and ground geophysical surveys that were conducted in the study area to gain insight into the deep structural geology and its possible association with aquifer systems.

SACNASP CPD EVENT Talk Abstract: Science is a living document; it grows and expands as more information becomes available and our knowledge grows. It makes use of hypotheses, experiments, observations, and measurements. Groundwater scientists have a difficult task. They work in a system that is not visible, and they cannot take it into a laboratory to study.
