R5750

Resilience to geological and hydrological hazards in dolomitic terrains is increasingly affected by climate change, rapid urbanisation and unforeseen implications of development during and after construction. The influences of the bedrock properties, karst development, hydrology and proposed development all affect the potential risk posed by the development. Dolomite and karst research has a long history with the University of Pretoria. Now, with the partnership of the relevant societies for geotechnical engineering, hydrogeology and engineering geology, new advances, technologies and techniques…
