Depositional Processes In Saldanha Bay And Langebaan Lagoon

ABSTRACTThis study deals with the physical aspects of sedimentation inSaldanha Bay and Langebaan Lagoon. On the basis of detailed textural investigationsthe depositional history of the study area has been established.The sediments in the bay and in the lagoon consist of a fine terrigenousquartz population and a coarser skeletal carbonate population, which have beenmixed in various proportions. In order to gain size parameters that are moreclosely related to the hydraulic nature of de...

Taxonomic Studies On The Genus Crassula L.

AbstractThe difficulties involved in the taxonomy of the genusCrassula, such as the extensive variation and often difficultspecies complexes, vicariousness and hybridization, are sketchedagainst a historical background. These difficulties have promptedthe author to review concepts of taxa from subspecific to genericlevel and have also le~ to the approach adopted in this work.It is argued that in several genera and sections, aspreviously recognized, too much stress was placed on the sev...

The Gammaridean And Caprellid Amphipoda Of Southern Africa.

AbstractIt is the intention of this thesis to bring together theexisting scattered data concerning the Amphipoda of southernAfrica, to add records from unidentified collections and topresent the whole in a form that will provide a firm basisfor future work in this field.The collections examined are principally those of the Universityof Cape Town, the South African Museum and the NationalInstitute for Water Research. These collections are togethermuch larger than any previously report...

Inelastic Nuclear Scattering Of Strongly Absorbed Particles

ABSTRACTClosed expressions for differential cross sections arederived from the Austern-Blair theory of inelastic nuclearscattering. These formulae are an extension of the strongabsorption model of Frahn and Venter for elastic scattering.AU the well-known features of inelastic angular distributions ofcomposite particles are shown explicitly. These include effectsof. the multipolarity of the transition, the nuclear interaction, theCoulomb force and the shape of the reflection coefficien...

Studies In The Gas Chromatography Of Amionia With Special Reference To Packings Containing Solutions Of: Silver Salts In Some.Organic Solvents

AbstractIt has been found that the gas chromatography of ammoniaon certain fixed phases containing salts yields chromatogramsconsisting of a peak followed by a plateau or a succession of'plateaux of progressively decreasing height. Such chromatogramshave been interpreted in terms of aromine formation in the column,, ~and methods have been theoretically elaborated.for usingmeasurements on the chromatograms to find the dissociation pressuresof the ammines and the ratios of amnonia taken...

Glass Beads As Indicators Of Contact And Trade In Southern Africa Ca. AD 900 - AD 1250

ABSTRACTLuxury goods, used in mediaeva1 long distance trade ca. AD 900-1250, found an importantmarket among the Iron Age peoples of southern Africa. Indirect evidence of this trade canbe seen in the form of archaeological collections of glass beads at sites throughout Africaand Southeast Asia. Thousands of beads have been found at Iron Age sites in the easternTransvaal Lowveld and at inland sites along the Limpopo Valley and in Botswana. Similarlooking types of beads, referred to as small...

From Salisbury To Harare : The Geography Of Public Authority Finance And Practice Under Chan·Ging .Ideological Circumstanc~

ABSTRACTFROM SALISBURY TO HARARE : THE GEOGRAPHY OF PUBLIC AUTHORITYFINANCE UNDER CHANGING IDEOLOGICAL CIRCUMSTANCESThis study is based on the assumption that money 'powers theurban system'. Its focus is the geography of public finance inHarare and ideologically inspired change in urban management.The context is the changing circumstances attendant upon thetransfer of power from minority White settler colonial rule toBlack majority rule in Zimbabwe. The ruling ZANU-PF partyprofessed ...

Redesigning landscape architecture in higher education: a multimodal social semiotic approach

ABSTRACTThis investigation is a case study of landscapearchitectural design education in South Africa. Currentforms of landscape architectural education areinfluenced by Global North perspectives and often, ifnot consciously, privilege particular ways of meaningmaking,and exclude or marginalise experiences or waysof knowing that are different. The aim of this researchis to develop a landscape architectural pedagogyfor diversity that fosters multiple perspectives andvalorises resourc...

3d Cine Dense Mri: Ventricular Segmentation And Myocardial Strain Analysis

Abstract3D cine DENSE MRI: Ventricular segmentation and myocardialstrain analysisDaniel Alejandro Auger 11 February 2013Displacement encoding with stimulated echoes (DENSE) is a quantitative magneticresonance imaging (MRI) technique which measures myocardial displacement at apixel resolution. Regional myocardial strain can then be calculated, providing a usefulclinical measure of myocardial function. Right ventricular (RV) function is difficult toquantify because of its asymmetrical geom...

The Impact Of The 2004 Election Campaign On The Quality Of Democracy In South Africa

ABSTRACTDespite the critical relationship between election campaigns and the quality ofdemocracy, it is an understudied phenomenon. Moreover, in South Africa, there hasnever been a systematic study of an entire election campaign. In this thesis I assesswhether the 2004 election campaign hindered or enhanced the quality of SouthAfrica’s democracy. I adapt Lasswell’s model of persuasive communication (whichviews the source, content, medium, recipient and effect as crucial parts of the...

The Crystal Structure And Costitution Of Some Molecular Complexes Of 4:41 -Dinitrodiphenxl

AbstractThe crystal structures or a number of molecularcomplexes formed by 4a4'•din1trodiphenyl with various diphenylderivatives are described. The general type of structure isundoubtedly the same tor all the complexes examined and thetypical arrangement may be taken as that in the complex of4·z4 1 .. dinitrodiphenyl with 4-hydroxydiphenyl, the structure ofwhich has been tully determined. As shown 1n fig. 7 thedinitrodiphenyl molecules form layers in face•centred arrayand lie on...

Teachers’ Perceptions Of The Effects Of Principals’ Managerial Competencies On The Adoption Of Strategic Management In Public Secondary Schools In Baringo County, Kenya

ABSTRACTStrategic management is a critical factor in strengthening organizational performance througheffective decision making, systematic strategy formulation and implementation of strategicgoals for the effective performance of an organization. Many successful organizations haveconsistently performed better than their competitors mainly because they have implementedstrategic management. The Ministry of Education, Science and Technology (MOES&T) inthe Republic of Kenya expects that all...

David Hume’s Theory Of Knowledge And Its Relevance To Education In Kenya’s Secondary Schools With Reference To Baringo Central District, Kenya

The theory of knowledge as espoused by David Hume is built on the principle of sense experience as a basis of human development. Kenya‟s secondary schools education appears to have borrowed from various philosophical theories, with Hume‟s theory of knowledge being one of them. Hence the study aimed at evaluating this theory and its relevance in secondary school education level in Baringo Central District as a point of reference. The study employed descriptive ex p...
