    Council for Geoscience. The Council for Geoscience (CGS) is one of the National Science Councils of South Africa and is the legal successor of the Geological Survey of South Africa, which was formed in by the amalgamation of three former surveys, the oldest of which - the Geological Commission of the Cape of Good Hope - was founded in This was an important step in further promoting knowledge of geology as a science and in recognizing the value of widely disseminating such knowledge. By the s, chemistry was starting to play a pivotal role in the theoretical foundation of geology and two opposite theories with committed followers emerged.

    To model the development of karst aquifers from primary fissures in limestone rock, a numerical model of solutional widening of such fractures by calcite agressive water is suggested. The geological setting determines relevant geometrical parameters, i.e., length of the fracture, its initial width and the hydraulic gradient driving water from the input to the by:   ENTREPRENEURIAL DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVE AND MICRO ENTERPRISE SUSTENANCE IN AWKA METROPOLIS ABSTRACT This study evaluates entrepreneurial development initiatives and micro enterprise sustenance in Awka metropolis.

The use of entropy has not only led to a significant increase in economic knowledge, but also to the emergence of such scientific disciplines as econophysics, complexity economics and quantum economics.The book results from a unique international event which combined the 36th North American Forum on the geology of Industrial Minerals with the 11th UK Extractive Industry Geology Conference.
