    Summary:

    Multipurpose dams combine two or more functions of traditional single-purpose dams into one hydro infrastructure project.  A multipurpose dam may combine storing and supplying water for irrigation, industry and human consumption with other uses such as flood control, power generation, navigation, run-off storage and water discharge regulation.

  • Optical Detectors for Integration into a Low Cost Radiometric Device for In-water applications: HyDROW Performance Test at Loskop Dam

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:
    Objective:
    Sectors:

    According to this study, a comprehensive and cost-effective method for wide area detection and monitoring of harmful algal blooms is needed to manage--and where possible circumvent--the negative impact harmful algal blooms may have on the country"s aquatic ecosystems. This study focuses on the performance of a low-cost, in-house developed prototype radiometer, which was evaluated against data registered with a commercially available hyperspectral tethered spectral radiometer buoy during a field campaign at Loskop Dam in South Africa.
