The Vadose Zone in Engineering Geology and Hydrogeology - Research by UP Geology

Join us for a FREE one-hour series of talks on recent research on unsaturated hydraulics and the role of the vadose or unsaturated zone in engineering geology and hydrogeology. The Department of Geology has for the past decade focused on how the soil and rock between land surface and the phreatic or saturated zone behave with respect to highly variable moisture contents. We contributed to knowledge on variably saturated flow through soil, rock defects, karst, and the interfaces between these media.


The talks will be presented by the following past and current doctoral students:

- Brendon Jones
- Mampho Maoyi
- Duan Swart

When: Thursday 4 February 15:00-16:00 on Zoom.
Cost: free but limited space


National Chairperson: Mr Fanus Fourie
Vice-Chairperson: Ms Nicolette Vermaak
National Treasurer: Mr Yazeed van Wyk
National Secretariat: Dr Jaco Nel
National Coordinator: Ms Elanda Schaffner
