First test measurements near Vinh Long, July 11th and 12th 2017

On July 11th and 12th first test measurements were conducted on the Mekong River at a focus area near Vinh Long by scientists of the Center for Water Management and Climate Change (WACC) and the Ludwig-Franzius-Institute (LuFI). The survey included measurements of current velocities and water depths at selected transects. The measurements serve as reference for the planning of an extended field campaign by the LuFI, which is going to take place in autumn 2017, with the aim of getting better insight into the local sediment transport and river morphology during high discharge season. Furthermore, collected datasets will be used for the set-up and calibration of hydro-morphodynamic numerical models.
