Hydrological Data Audit

Background

Myanmar’s Department of Meteorology and Hydrology (DMH) and Hydro-Informatics Centre (HIC) identified a need to undertake a comprehensive review of available hydrometric and meteorological data to help inform evidence-based decision-making in the Ayeyarwady Basin.

Activities

AWP Partners ALS Hydrographics, Alluvium and Hydronumerics consolidated and quality-checked all hydrological, meteorological, water quality and sediment data available for the basin and developed a hydrological database of more than 1,000 quality-assured datasets for installation within the HIC.

These datasets were a key input into the development of an eWater Source river system model, and have been critical inputs to a number of other SOBA activities.

The data audit team also trained HIC and DMH staff in data assessment and quality assurance, geomorphology analysis techniques, ADCP gauging and rating table reviews.
