The purpose of this paper is to review the case for using ‘capture’ rather than recharge as the conceptual basis for sustainable groundwater use in South Africa. Capture refers to the sum of the increase in recharge and ...
Application of the rainfall infiltration breakthrough (RIB) model for groundwater recharge estimation in west coastal South Africa
(Water Research Commission, 2013)
Recharge estimation in arid and semi-arid areas is very challenging. The chloride mass balance method applied in western South Africa fails to provide reliable recharge estimates near coastal areas. A relationship between ...
