SANCOLD Financial Support for post graduate studies 2019:

SANCOLD has identified the urgent need to update the data and methods used for design flood estimation in South Africa and has initiated a National Flood Studies Programme (NFSP) to update these. To advance this programme, SANCOLD is proud to announce that it has provided for 2019, financial support of R75 000 to each of five students whose research links into furthering this programme.
This financial support is provided to

  • Nkosinathi Dlamini whose study proposal is “Development and Assessment of a Joint Probability Event Based Approach for Design Flood Estimation in South Africa, ”
  • Udhav Maharaj whose research proposal is “Refine and update the SCS-SA model for design flood estimation to account for antecedent moisture conditions and joint association of rainfall and runoff using the results and methodology from a CSM system that was developed”,
  • Ryshan Ramlall whose research proposal is “Assessing and updating techniques for disaggregating daily rainfall for design flood estimation” and
  • Keanu Singh whose research proposal is “An assessment of data quality and availability on the estimation of design floods in South Africa”.

All of these research projects are guided by Prof JC Smithers at the University of KwaZulu-Natal.

  • The final award is to Todd Thomas whose research proposal is “Deriving Areal Reduction Factors using Radar Imagery”.

This research project is taking place at Stellenbosch University under the guidance of Prof JA du Plessis.

We wish these awardees success in their studies and hope that their research will provide valuable input to the NFSP.

SANCOLD Financial Support for post graduate studies 2018:

SANCOLD has identified the urgent need to update the data and methods used for design flood estimation in South Africa and has initiated a National Flood Studies Programme (NFSP) to update these. To advance this programme, SANCOLD is proud to announce that it has provided for 2018, financial support of R45 000 to each of three students whose research links into furthering this programme.  


This financial support was provided to Nkosinathi Dlamini whose study proposal is “Apply and assess a Joint Probability event based approach to design flood estimation for South African catchments”, Nkululeko Mabila whose research proposal is “Assess the performance of selected simple Continuous Simulation Modelling approaches for Design Flood Estimation in South Africa” and Keanu Singh whose research proposal is “An assessment of data quality and availability on the estimation of design floods in South Africa”.
