Karoo Groundwater Atlas contributes valuable information for South Africa

Mar 22, 2012

To coincide with World Water Day, Shell South Africa today released Stage One of a Karoo Groundwater Atlas. The Atlas is the result of a study conducted at the end of 2011 into the occurrence and characteristics of groundwater in the Karoo area of South Africa. A team of eight leading South African hydrogeologists with more than 250 years of combined Karoo-specific groundwater experience led the study. The local specialists undertook a desktop review and held a workshop to identify and agree on key groundwater attributes and their significance across the Karoo region.
