Abstract

South Africa's most valuable source of water is the eastern escarpment region of the KwaZulu-Natal Drakensberg and Lesotho highlands. Analysis of rainfall variability trends can thus contribute to a better understanding and management of the area and yet no recent studies have investigated these aspects. This study assesses the 1970-2000 rainfall period using 13 stations to the east of the escarpment and presents a spatial perspective on annual rainfall totals and intra- and inter- annual variability. - (AJC)
