  • Kruger, Andries C. (Nature Publishing Group, 2018-05)
    The African continent is one of the most vulnerable regions to future climate change. Research now demonstrates that constraining anthropogenic warming to 1.5 °C instead of 2 °C will significantly lower the risk of heatwaves ...
  • Kruger, Andries C.; Retief, J.V.; Goliger, A.M. (South African Institution of Civil Engineering, 2017-12)
    This paper evaluates the need for updating the strong wind climate stipulations of South Africa for the design of structures in accordance with SANS 10160-3:2010, as based on the latest information presented by Kruger ...
  • Kruger, Andries C.; Rautenbach, Hannes; Mbatha, Sifiso; Ngwenya, Sandile; Makgoale, Thabo E. (Academy of Science of South Africa, 2019-05-29)
    Motivated by the risks posed by global warming, historical trends and future projections of near-surface temperature in South Africa have been investigated in a number of previous studies. These studies included the ...
  • Kruger, Andries C.; Nxumalo, M.P. (Water Research Commission, 2017-04)
    The aim of this study is to update the analysis of historical rainfall trends with reference to the work from previous studies, through optimizing the highest spatial resolution with the longest possible period of analysis, ...
  • Singh, Jyotsna; Kruger, Andries C. (The Research Energy Centre of the University of Cape Town, 2017-05)
    Seasonal trends using in situ sunshine duration (SD) and satellite, incoming shortwave solar radiation (SIS) data for South Africa over a period up to six decades were investigated. Trend analysis was applied to SD ...
  • Schlegel, Robert W.; Oliver, Eric C.J.; Perkins-Kirkpatrick, Sarah; Kruger, Andries C.; Smit, Albertus J. (Frontiers Media, 2017-10-12)
    As the mean temperatures of the worlds oceans increase, it is predicted that marine heatwaves (MHWs) will occur more frequently and with increased severity. However, it has been shown that variables other than increases ...
  • Goliger, A.M.; Retief, J.V.; Kruger, Andries C. (South African Institution of Civil Engineering, 2017-12)
    With the publication of Part 3 Wind Actions of the South African Loading Code SANS 10160:2010, several issues concerning adjustments from the reference standard Eurocode EN 1991-1-4:2004 could not be resolved due to lack ...
  • Kruger, Andries C.; Nxumalo, M. (Wiley, 2017-04)
    Previous assessments of historical trends of measured surface temperature in South Africa have all shown a general upward trend, in both mean and extreme values, over recent decades. In addition, some regional differences ...
