Degree: Masters of Science in Hydrology

Working title of thesis: The parameterisation, simplification and further testing of a sediment transport model

Supervisor/s: Andrew R. Slaughter, Denis A. Hughes, Sukhmani Mantel

Year of registration: 2016

Biography:

I have an Honours degree in Geography and population studies from Lupane State University (LSU), Zimbabwe. My current masters’ study focuses simplifying parameter estimation and further testing a sediment transport and delivery model. A regionalisation procedure using GIS coverages will be used to parameterize the model’s basin parameters. The model will be tested on catchments of varying physical characteristic and sizes. The envisaged output is a relatively simple, effective sediment delivery model that can estimate sediment delivery at catchment scale.
