Test measurements within the Jade Bay, Germany, October 2017

In order to be able to measure bedload transport rates within the Mekong River, a bedload sampler has been manufactured by the Ludwig-Franzius-Institute (LuFI).

The bedload sampler, which is directly placed on the riverbed, can be combined with additional measuring devices (i.e. LISST probe for sediment concentrations within the water column). First in-situ measurements with the bedload sampler were performed within the Jade Bay (Germany), since the existing boundary conditions (water depths, current velocities, sediment properties) are comparable to the Mekong River near My Thuan Bridge, where two field campaigns will be conducted in spring and autumn 2018.
