Radical changes in the legal framework protecting refugee children"s right to education has occurred since South Africa became a democratic state in 1994. The enac ...
  2. The moult and migration strategies of Lesser Sand Plover, Greater Sand Plover and Terek Sandpiper
    Jackson, Colin, 2018-05-03T12:35:50Z, University of Cape Town
    Moult in birds is a critical yet often underrated component of a birds" annual life cycle together with breeding and migration. A good understanding of the moult strategy of a species is important for its conservation because key moulting grounds must be protected to allow this component of the life ...
  3. Typing training through gamification
    Chomunorwa, Silence, 2018-05-03T12:36:11Z, University of Cape Town
  4. Neuro-evolution behavior transfer for collective behavior tasks
    Didi, Sabre Z, 2018-05-03T12:36:15Z, University of Cape Town
    The design of effective, robust and autonomous controllers for multi-agent and multi-robot systems is a long-standing problem in the fields of computational intelligence and robotics. Whilst nature-inspired problem-solving techniques such as reinforcement learning (RL) and evolutionary algorithms (E ...
  5. Modelling the oceanic circulation in the Delagoa Bight
    Cossa, Obadias J, 2018-05-03T12:36:42Z, University of Cape Town
    The ROMS is used to investigate the oceanic circulation in the Delagoa Bight region, near the southwestern end of the Mozambique Channel. The model is initially configured at a horizontal resolution of 1/10° (9.9km) over the domain 30.1-43°E,22.13-30.8° S. Subsequent configurations nested an inner g ...
  6. Investigating the local circulation of the southeast Cape Basin

The juxtaposition of offshore mesoscale variability and coastal upwelling results in a complex and dynamic environ ...
  7. Investigating the sensitivity of one-dimensional turbulence schemes in the sub-Antarctic Southern Ocean
    Boodhraj, Kirodh, 2018-05-03T12:36:56Z, University of Cape Town
    The sub-Antarctic Zone (SAZ) is a zone of vigorous vertical mixing in the Southern Ocean where it is difficult to obtain data for model validation on the turbulence conditions. In this study, a onedimensional configuration from the Nucleus for the European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO) model was imp ...
  8. Kinetic models for the Pt/CeO₂ catalysed water-gas shift reaction
    Brown, Darryl Edward, 2018-05-03T12:37:15Z, University of Cape Town
    As the global population grows, so does the world"s demand for energy. Consequently, there exists an increased interest in the development of fuel cells for power generation due to their low greenhouse gas emissions. For fuel cells to be a successful power source, a reliable hydrogen source is requi ...
