WP 2000 Hydrodynamics and sediment dynamics in the Mekong Basin



The goal of WP 2000 is the assessment and quantification of land surface parameters, the hydrology and the sediment dynamics for the entire Mekong Basin as fundamental basis for the subsequent research work in the Mekong Delta. Therefore, research activities in the field of remote sensing for assessing hydrological relevant land surface parameters (e.g. land use/land cover) and remote sensing of water quality and sediment dynamics in the Mekong River at existing and planned dam locations will be combined with large scale hydrological modelling.  The principle goal of the modelling at basin scale is the quantification of water discharge and sediment loads in the Mekong Delta at current state and under different boundary conditions.
