New in HOORC's Library: land cover change thesis

We have just received Jafet Andersson’s Land cover change in the Okavango River Basin : historical changes during the Angolan Civil War: contributing causes and effects on water quality, a Masters thesis for the Department of Water and Environmental Studies at Linköping University. Andersson’s study made use of remote sensing techniques to measure degrees of change in vegetation vigour during the war, and field studies of nutrient concentrations to analyse potential impacts of expanding large-scale agriculture and urban growth on the water quality of the river along the Angola-Namibia border. HOORC researcher Susan Ringrose co-supervised the thesis, which can be found in our Centre’s Library.
