Field Measurements and Data Analysis

An important part of the project is additional data collection to complement the flow, salinity, turbidity and suspended sediments and dissolved oxygen databases in the target geographic areas. In order to collect data for continued development of WUP-FIN modelling tools in the target areas, the WUP-FIN Team will:

  • identify and collect existing data from target geographic areas

  • identify data gaps impeding modelling tools development (hydrology, hydrodynamics, sedimentation, water quality, nutrient cycle, primary production, fisheries, socio-economics etc.)

  • plan and execute a field measurement program to fill the gaps

  • cooperate with JICA team in Vientiane bank erosion measurements, and

  • utilize the WUP-French water quality study.
