  • Botai, M.C. (Mihloti Christina); Combrinck, Ludwig (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2012-03)
    The launch of artificial satellites (as early as in 1957), specifically the launch of the first laser tracked satellite, Beacon-B, in 1964, has provided data sets which have allowed researchers to probe the long to medium ...
  • Botai, M.C. (Mihloti Christina); Botai, J.O. (Joel Ongego); Muchuru, Shepherd; Ngwana, Isaac (MDPI Publishing, 2015-04-15)
    Water resources, particularly in arid and semi-arid regions of the world are of great concern, as they are closely linked to the wellbeing of humankind. Sophisticated hydrological prediction tools are required to assess ...
  • Muchuru, Shepherd; Botai, M.C. (Mihloti Christina); Botai, J.O. (Joel Ongego); Adeola, A.M. (Abiodun Morakinyo) (American Meteorological Society, 2015-04)
    In this paper, monthly, maximum seasonal, and maximum annual hydrometeorological (i.e., evaporation, lake water levels, and rainfall) data series from the Kariba catchment area of the Zambezi River basin, Zimbabwe, have ...
  • Botai, M.C. (Mihloti Christina); Combrinck, Ludwig; Trumbull, R.B. (Geological Society of South Africa, 2011-12)
    Continuous tracking of geodetic satellites using the Satellite Laser Ranging technique has provided unprecedented opportunity in long- to medium-wavelength gravity field modelling. Numerous gravity field models have been ...
  • Botai, M.C. (Mihloti Christina); Combrink, Ludwig; Botai, J.O. (Joel Ongego) (Springer, 2014-12)
    Satellite laser ranging (SLR) as a proven geodetic technique provides a wide and significant contribution to scientific studies of the Earth/Atmosphere/Ocean systems. In particular, modelling of the Earth and pole tides ...
  • Botai, M.C. (Mihloti Christina); Combrinck, Ludwig; Botai, J.O. (Joel Ongego) (AOSIS OpenJournals, 2015-03)
    This contribution reassesses progress in the development of satellite laser ranging (SLR) technology and its scientific and societal applications in South Africa. We first highlight the current global SLR tracking ...
  • Muchuru, Shepherd; Botai, J.O. (Joel Ongego); Botai, M.C. (Mihloti Christina); Landman, W.A. (Willem Adolf), 1964-; Adeola, A.M. (Abiodun Morakinyo) (Springer, 2016-04)
    In this study, average monthly and annual rainfall totals recorded for the period 1970 to 2010 from a network of 13 stations across the Lake Kariba catchment area of the Zambezi river basin were analyzed in order to ...
