First prize for poster presentation for Gqeberha groundwater challenges at international congress

Mandela University master’s student in Geosciences Bamanye Takashe won first prize for his poster at the Worldwide Congress of International Association of Hydrogeologists in Cape Town.

The title of Bamanye’s poster presentation at the congress was "Hydrogeological Characterization of the Coastal Aquifer of Gqeberha, South Africa."

The poster is a significant component of his recently submitted thesis for his master’s degree. This project is particularly relevant due to the water challenges we have faced in the Nelson Mandela Bay in recent years.

It focuses on the groundwater aspects of the coastal residential areas and the impact of increased borehole usage during droughts on aquifers.

Mandela University PhD student receives NRF Research Excellence Award 

PhD student in Geosciences Carla Dodd from Nelson Mandela University has recently received an NRF (National Research Foundation) Research Excellence Award for her pioneering research on groundwater resources.

Carla is one of seven recipients of the NRF Research Excellence Award for Next Generation Researchers in recognition of outstanding academic performance by final-year doctoral candidates.
“My research will help answer questions regarding where and when our coastal groundwater resources are replenished and whether anthropogenic activities (i.e., pollution) are affecting the groundwater quality.
“This has direct implications for sustainable groundwater development and management in Nelson Mandela Bay and the adjacent coastal areas, says Carla, whose dream job is “to continue with research - especially related to water quality, resource management and groundwater development in South Africa.”
