Hydrology. Upstream flow contributes only a small portion of the total annual flow of the Mekong River. Most of the total flow volume is delivered to the Mekong from tributaries in the Lower Mekong Basin (see Table 1); however, the importance of upstream flow should not be underestimated as dry-season snow melt from China contributes to over 24% of the total flow.

Lao PDR lies almost entirely within the Lower Mekong Basin. Its climate, landscape and land use are the major 1961 hydrologic data shaping the hydrology of the river.

The Mekong is a trans-boundary river in Southeast is the world's twelfth longest river and the seventh longest in Asia. Its estimated length is 4, km (2, mi), and it drains an area ofkm 2 (, sq mi), discharging km 3 ( cu mi) of water annually. From the Tibetan Plateau the river runs through China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.⁃ coordinates: 33°′N 94°′E / °N.

The Mekong River Commission (MRC) was established on 5 April by the Agreement on The Cooperation for The Sustainable Development of The Mekong River Basin [MRC, ]. The MRC member countries are Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Viet Nam.

Modelling Hydrologic Processes in the Mekong River Basin Using a Distributed Model Driven by Satellite Precipitation and Rain Gauge Observations Article (PDF Available) in PLoS ONE 11(3):e The Mekong River is the longest major river in southeastern Asia with a drainage area that covers portions of six countries.

The river originates in China and flows through or borders Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. The Mekong River Basin (MRB) is the land area that includes the streams and rivers that run into the Mekong River.

The. Field observations of total phosphorus (TP), chemical oxygen demand and heavy metals were conducted in the Mekong River Basin in Cambodia and the Chao Phraya River Basin in Thailand.

In the Mekong. The estimated hydropower potential of the lower Mekong Basin (i.e., excluding China) is 30, MW, while that of the upper Mekong Basin is 28, MW. In the lower Mekong, more than 3, MW has been realized via facilities built largely over the past ten years, while projects under construction will represent an additional 3, MW.

Photos of Common Fishes in the Lower Mekong Basin This document is the updated photo book of existing fish species that can be found in the Mekong River. It has been developed in close collaboration with the MRC Former Fisheries Programme and the corresponding national line agencies.

- The Mekong River, 2, miles long travels through 6 countries. It is divided into 2 parts: the Upper Mekong in Tibet and China & the Lower Mekong from Yunnan down to the delta in Vietnam emptying into the South China Sea. Countries: China, Myanmar, Lao, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam.

It is vital to the 1961 hydrologic data security of people in this region pins. NHI’s Accomplishments The Natural Heritage Institute (NHI) and an international team of experts, funded in part by USAID, have evaluated proposed and existing hydropower projects in Lao and Cambodia that will have major negative impacts on Mekong River fisheries.

The team has developed, in detail, innovative alternatives to dams and dam operations that both protect. The Hydrology of the Mekong River – Peter T. Adamson, Ian D. Rutherfurd, Murray C. Peel, Iwona A. Conlan 5. Geomorphology and Sedimentology of the Lower Mekong River - Paul A. Carling 6.

Data source and availability Hydrological and meteorological data such as daily streamflow and precipitation has been measured since s and is available from the Mekong River Commission (MRC) and the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology of the LaoPDR (DMH), but includes discontinuities and missing data values (Table 1).

Data. The Mekong river basin is a diverse region, in approximately 70 million people lived across the six countries (CDRI, ). Compared to river basins such as the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna and the Indus average population density is generally low in the Mekong river basin, around 88 inhabitants/km2,File Size: 2MB.

The Mekong River Basin (, km 2) is one of the world’s largest catchments, spanning over six countries in southeast Asia. With its headwaters in the Tibetan Plateau in China, the Mekong gains volume as it heads southwards through Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and then Vietnam where it flows into the South China Sea.

The Mekong River is the most important river in Southeast by: In a severe flood has been recorded in the area around Stung Treng at the confluence with the Mekong River, the Mekong Delta suffered most during the floods inand was the most devastating for the central area of Lao PDR and Thailand.

The Mekong River is the heart and soul of mainland Southeast Asia. The 12th longest river in the world, the Mekong runs 4, kilometers from its headwaters on the Tibetan Plateau through Yunnan Province of China, Burma, Thailand, Cambodia, Lao PDR and Vietnam.

Figure 1: The Mekong river basin: topography, country borders, stream gauges, and major dams in operation within Major land cover and land use changes in the Mekong basin Land cover in the Mekong basin has undergone dramatic changes in the last century, with the replacement of forest and other original vegetation cover with.

Quality variations of the Mekong river at Phnom Penh, Cambodia, and chemical transport in the Mekong basin. Hydrol., Daily samples were collected between January and December on which pH, temperature, dissolved oxygen and conductivity were by: Upper Mekong Basin.

The Upper Basin makes up 24% of the total area and contributes 15 to 20% of the water that flows into the Mekong River. The catchment here is steep and narrow. Soil erosion has been a major problem and approximately 50% of the sediment in the river comes from the Upper Basin.

The intent of our work, published in this and a companion paper Costa-Cabral et al. (in review) is to is to evaluate the causes of streamflow space-time variability in the Mekong River basin, and to use that understanding to predict the basin’s hydrologic response to. In this study, the flood event in has been selected in the Mekong River Basin.

The simulation results were compared with observed discharges at monitoring stations along the river and an inundation map from Landsat 7 satellite imagery and the Mekong River Commission (MRC) data.

The Workshop on “River Basin Water Management in Cambodia” Ministry of Water Resources and Meteorology (MOWRAM) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) will organize “The Joint Dissemination Workshop on River Basin Water Management in Cambodia” on 10th July, from am at the conference room of MOWRAM 2nd campus, under.

The Sambor dam, proposed by the Government of Cambodia, is probably the largest and most destructive dam in the Mekong River Basin. It is slated to be located on the mainstream between the confluence with the 3-S basin (Se San, Sre Pok and Se Kong rivers), which is where migratory fish reproduction takes place, and the Tonle Sap Great Lake, the.

InCambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam established the Mekong River Commission (MRC) as a means of collectively addressing the development problems of the Lower Mekong Basin. Since then, the Commission has done much to improve the sustainable management of the water resource.

There is not a coherent and integrated geological map of the whole of the Mekong Basin. Various government agencies of the four countries of the Lower Mekong Basin (Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand, and Viet Nam) have produced excellent maps of the geology of their respective country.

However, these have not yet been integrated to cover the whole basin. the Tibetan plateau, the Mekong flows south, cutting through southern China to the common Myanmar (Burma)- Laos and Thailand boundary. It then flows a further 2, km to the ocean.

In terms of river flow, the Mekong Basin has two almost distinct parts: the upper parts in China and Myanmar account forFile Size: KB. The Mekong River Basin: Historic Cooperation and Emerging Pressures The Mekong River Basin, depicted in Figure 1 below, originates in the Chinese Tibetan plateau and crosses the boundaries of five other riparian states – Myanmar, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, and Vietnam – before draining into the South China Size: KB.

During Phase 1 (), CPWF-Mekong managed 13 projects in the basin. During Phase 2 (), CPWF Mekong implemented: t 19 projects, through a network of 76 partners, with US$ million. t 22 small grants in Vietnam, Lao PDR and Cambodia, China and!ailand. t A scaled approach: local, catchment and basin.

The paper presents a simplified method and application to incorporate water values for fisheries and wetlands into an integrated economic-hydrologic river basin model to analyze alternative water-using strategies and their implications for riparian countries.

Located in the centre of Cambodia, Tonle Sap lake is the largest freshwater lake in South-east Asia and with a unique hydrology has for centuries been at the core of Cambodian life and culture.

The flow of the Tonle Sap river is reversed when the level of the Mekong waters rise in the flood season (June-September) pushing water into the lake.

For more than 20 years, the management of the Mekong River system has been in the hands of the Mekong River Commission (MRC). The MRC covers the four lower Mekong countries – Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam – however its limited mandate means that the two upstream countries – Myanmar and China – are not included.

The Lower Mekong Basin is entering a critical period in which upcoming development decisions will echo in the economy for decades to come. With looming decisions around hydropower development, industrial expansion, fisheries and general regional economic growth, sectors and countries cannot afford to continue to operate independently.

In the Mekong River Basin, hydropower has great potential to bring economic prosperity and electrification to rural communities while meeting the growing power demands of urban centers.

But ensuring the benefits from hydropower are equitably shared within nations as well as at the river basin scale is not easy.
