      Modelling Hydrologic Processes in the Mekong River Basin Using a Distributed Model Driven by Satellite Precipitation and Rain Gauge Observations. PLOS e, / [PMC free article] [Google Scholar] Wang W, Lu H, Zhao T, Jiang L, Shi J, by: 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.

        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. An even greater danger to the fishery looms in northern Cambodia itself, on a tributary of the Mekong called the Tonle San, or Sesan River. The Sesan .

      Mekong River Basin Study WRI has conducted in-depth studies in a number of key river basins around the world. These basin studies have helped develop, refine, and validate the Water Risk Framework at the core of the Aqueduct global maps, and uncovered a wealth of knowledge about the unique conditions in critical river basins around the world.   The governments of Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and Vietnam are planning to build eleven large hydropower dams on the Lower Mekong River. If built, these dams would destroy the river’s rich biodiversity and threaten the food security of millions of people. A River Shared by Millions. The Mekong River is one of the world’s great rivers.

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.

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.

MRC maintains regular dialogue with the two upper states of the Mekong River Basin, China and Size: 1MB. In the Mekong River Basin where large-scale flooding occurs during the rainy season, floodplains are of great importance (Adamson et al., ; Campbel, ).

Flood inundation risks include. - 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 food security of people in this region pins. 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.

Across the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB), covering portions of Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, deforestation has been considerable ranging from.

Mandate. The Mekong Agreement provides the legal mandate of the Mekong River Commission (MRC). It defines the scope of the work and cooperation required for coordination and joint planning to achieve balanced and socially just development in the Mekong River Basin while protecting the environment and maintaining the region’s ecological balance.

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.

Intended as an introduction to the hydrology of the Mekong River. Downstream from the Golden Triangle, the river flows for a further 2, km (1, mi) through Laos, Thailand and Cambodia before entering the South China Sea via a complex delta system in Vietnam. 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 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 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.

It is the largest river in Southeast Asia. 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.

Introduction. The Mekong River is one of the great tropical rivers of the world. The regular huge wet-season flow peak supports arguably the most productive river fishery in the world (MRC,Chapter 9).Unlike many major rivers in Asia, the channel of the Mekong, and its flood regime, remain relatively intact (Revenga et al., ).Although there are 58 dams in the Cited by: Mekong implemented: t 19 projects, through a network of 76 partners, with US$ million.

The Mekong Project, as it came to be known, proposed the construction of a set of major dams on the mainstream and of numerous smaller ones on the tributaries to bring hydropower, flood control Cited by: China has built seven hydropower dams on the upper Mekong River (known as the Lancang in China), and plans to build 21 more.

The Lancang crosses through Qinghai, Tibet and Yunnan before flowing into Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam. There have been many concerns from the Lower Mekong communities on how these dams will impact their lives and. MRC [Mekong River Commission] () Overview of the hydrology of the Mekong Basin.
