  The Hydrographic Atlas of , based on field survey (–) and aerial photos (–) (Mekong River Commission, ), was used to map the bank location in The scale of the atlas is also ,Cited by: locations during the hydrographic survey, and a real-time kinematic Global Positioning System unit will be used to provide elevation and positioning for the survey. 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 and Landing Facilities, local ferry for Taxi boats in Phnom Penh Seeking Fund 4.

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. Räsänen et al. () report that there are 36 operating hydropower dams in the Lower Mekong. in the Lower Mekong River system in order to assist the Member Countries in developing effective and safe waterborne transport. • 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. In , Thailand 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 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).
