The background radiation and exposure levels at various South African west coast military units
(Stellenbosch University. Faculty of Military Science (Military Academy), 2014)
The West Coast of South Africa between St Helena Bay to the north and Langebaan Lagoon to the south is characterised by numerous granite protrusions. These outcrops are elements of the underlying Cape Granite Suite, which ...
The investigation of radionuclides distributions in beach sand by means of GIS techniques
(CONSAS Conference, 2015-11)
A transportable and robust gamma ray detection system (GISPI) was employed to determine the concentrations of naturally occurring radionuclides on various beaches in and around Saldanha Bay, located on the West Coast ...
Testing and implementation of a transportable and robust radio-element mapping system
(Academy of Science of South Africa, 2015-09-25)
Gamma ray spectroscopy has been successfully applied as a survey tool in the fields of morphology, geology and mineral exploration. Gamma ray surveys are regularly done at ground level, which frequently requires transecting ...
Nature of military geography
(Stellenbosch University, Faculty of Military Science (Military Academy), 2012)
The author presents a review of the book " Modern Military Geography" edited by Francis A. Galgano and Eugene J. Palka (2011), about the relationship between geography and military conflict.
Mapping of historical human activities in the Saldanha Bay military area by using in situ gamma ray measurements
(Faculty of Military Science, Stellenbosch University, 2012)
Saldanha Bay on the west coast of South Africa is surrounded by various nature reserves, military units and training sites. Over a long period of time, large parts of this semi-arid area were exposed to human activities, ...
The mapping and investigation of radionuclide pollution in the processing plant of a spent phosphate mine by using GIS techniques
The mining and refinement of phosphate is characterised by high levels of uranium. An in situ gamma ray survey was done at the processing plant of a spent phosphate mine near Vredenburg on the west coast of South Africa ...
Estimation of radon potential through measurement of uranium concentrations in granite geology
(Academy of Science of South Africa, 2019)
The geology of an area can be used as a predictor for radon potential. Granite rock typically contains a high concentration of uranium and subsequent elevated emanation of radon gas. The geology of the western part of the ...
