      The Upper and Lower Basins make up 24 and 76 percent respectively of the total area of the basin (MRC, ; MRC, b). population 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.   1. Introduction Characteristics of the Mekong River Basin. The Mekong River is significant for several reasons. It is a very large river – one of the 25 largest in terms of catchment area (about , km 2), and the 15th largest in terms of mean annual discharge, about km 3 (MRC, , Campbell, a).It is therefore an important water resource.

      Four teams were appointed to survey the river's main stem in the four lower Mekong countries (Lao PDR, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam). The work took place during the low-flow season (February to April for Laos, Thailand and Cambodia, and May for Vietnam). Hydrographic surveys were conducted in the dry and wet seasons of in its main branch, to determine sub-tidal and intra-tidal river outflow patterns and sediment transport processes, plus.

      a preliminary survey of the river. Its report pointed out that there were major opportunities for developing the river for power, irrigation, and flood control and suggested that more intensive studies be carried out. The countries which share the lower . opinion was reinforced in the early s when I tried to collaborate on a paper about Mekong fish for a book on river systems of the world. When I started putting together a huge data matrix of our collections, I realized that the main stem of the Mekong River has a complete change in species between periods of low flow and high flow.

A major objective of the hydrographic survey is to provide MBES survey training for technical staff from the Mekong River Commission and agencies of its member countries.

Lower Mekong Basin should become easier in the future thanks to the MRC’s new basin-wide scenario work. The fi rst results on the hydrological impacts of various likely scenarios will be available in September through the Basin Development Plan Programme.

Formulation of the scenarios, including a mainstream dam scenario, is progress. 3 Hydrographic survey and ENC establishment along Lower Mekong River from PP to Vietnam border, 97 Km Submitted MFE 4 Port Development Lower Mekong River Project book Landing Facilities, local ferry for Taxi boats in Phnom Penh Seeking Fund 4.

Waterways Infrastructure and Project Proposal. The Mekong River Commission has developed the Lower Mekong Hydropower Database to track constructed and proposed projects in the territory of its members while the Chinese government does not maintain a similar database that is publicly available.

• One of the first navigation activities of the MRC following the signing of the Mekong Agreement was to begin the process of upgrading the Hydrographic Atlas of the Mekong River System for navigation in the. stem of the river, but no major project has yet to be initiated, although dozens have been proposed.

The work of the Committee has also helped overcome political suspicion through increased integration. InThailand and Laos signed an agreement on developing the power potential of the Nam Ngum River, a Mekong tributary inside Laos. The Lower Mekong Regional Water Quality Report is an annual report that provides a detailed study of the current status of the water quality in the Mekong River.

The routine water quality monitoring under the WQMN has become one of the key environmental monitoring activities implemented under the MRC Environment Programme, supporting the. The latest reports from the Lower Mekong Basin are cause for growing concern that another period of drought will succeed that ofaffecting Laos, Thailand, Cambodia.

The last four countries are categorized as the Lower Mekong Basin, where two thirds of the population rely on the water resources for subsistence agriculture and fisheries as well as to develop.

The Mekong Committee is the principal institution for international water resource planning in the Lower Mekong River basin. It is likely to play several important roles in helping the people of the region adjust to any future changes in climate. Hydrographic Survey of the Lower Mekong.

This survey was initiated in in large part to. data from gage stations within the Mekong River Basin. Hydrographic surveys taken in and of the Mekong River were also provided in the repository and these data sets were used to develop a bathymetry set for the study area.

The available bathymetry data was processed and merged with off-shore GEBCO data (USGS). The Mekong River Commission -- a regional group made up of Cambodia, Laos, Thailand, and Vietnam -- has meanwhile issued several warnings about the impact on downstream countries of China’s dams.

The mean water discharge of the Mekong at Kratie, in Cambodia (Fig. 1b) is 14, m 3 /s annual hydrological regime is seasonal (Fig. 2b) with a southwest Monsoon flood season (May-October) during which river-borne sediment is delivered to the delta and coastal ocean through several distributary mouths associated with the two main branches, the Bassac and the Mekong.

Although bedrock channels are usually associated with mountain drainage basins, the lower Mekong River, south of Yunnan province in China, is unusual for such a large river. Generally, the Mekong River basin is divided into two sub-basins: (i) the Upper Mekong Basin (UMB) covering an area ofkm 2 in China, and; (ii) the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB) coveringkm 2 downstream from China (Li et al.,Li et al., ).

The UMB is largely mountainous with a low population density (∼8 people/km 2 in ). Mekong River System is the main area for inland waterways and ports development. The inland waterway in Cambodia is 1,Km. However, ship can only be operated in Km of the inland waterways.

The entire waterway in Cambodia, Mekong river makes up 30%, Tonle Sap and Bassac rivers make up 15% and 5% respectively, and all other. The aim was to evaluate two production strategies over a day grow-out trial: (1) production to g crab−1, which is the minimum preferred marketable size in the Lower Mekong.
