Considering the well‐documented impacts of land‐use change on water resources and the
rapid land‐use conversions occurring throughout Africa, in this study, we conducted a spatiotemporal
analysis of surface water quality and its relation with the land use and land cover (LULC)
pattern in Mokopane, Limpopo province of South Africa. Various...
