Symposium on Mekong Hydrological Cycle Observation System, Siem Reap, Cambodia » Mekong River Commission | A. | Scoop.it
Adriana Chavez's insight:

The Mekong-HYCOS is an MRC project operated by the Information and Knowledge Management Programme (IKMP). Since 2006, it has upgraded existing hydro-meteorological stations in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand, Viet Nam and China with state of-the-art equipment and tools as well as operating systems to meet the standards of the World Meteorological Organization, the project’s partner. The project also installed new posts in the countries.

Currently, there are 49 stations throughout the region, 17 on the mainstream, 30 on the tributaries and 2 tidal stations in the Mekong Delta. These stations share raw data on rainfall and water levels through the MRC’s data sharing platform.
