  2. 2. The Effects of Erosion-control Structures and Gully Erosion on Groundwater Dynamics Along the Kromrivier, Eastern Cape, South Africa

    University essay from Stockholms universitet/Institutionen för naturgeografi

    Author : Vincent de Haan; [2016]
    Keywords : Gully erosion; wetland; groundwater dynamics; erosion-control structures;

    Abstract : The Palmiet wetlands located along the Kromrivier in the Eastern Cape province of South Africa have experienced severe degradation through gully erosion during the past decennia which has been threatening the water quality and water security of large towns in the Nelson Mandela Metropolitan hub. Water scarcity is a growing problem in this region as a result of land degradation and growing erratic rainfall patterns. READ MORE
