In 2013 and 2014, a hydrodynamic model for the Ayeyarwady delta was developed. This delta is located in the Southwestern part of Myanmar. Because it is prone to flooding and is also affected by salt intrusion during periods of low river discharge, it was chosen to develop a hydrodynamic model to gain more insight into the aforementioned...

Large sedimentation is observed in the Yangon port area in Myanmar and this sediment is blocking the entrance channel into the port. The entrance channel is dredged intensively to keep it navigable but insight into the sedimentation processes is limited. The sedimented area rises above the water level in dry season and is known as the Inner Bar....

Myanmar is dealing with a large data deficit, which is in contrast with the substantial need for it. The implementation of measuring techniques to obtain hydro- and morphodynamic data is an upcoming process. Measuring velocities can be valuable for calibrating models or giving estimates of sedimentation and erosion. An example of a measuring...

The objective of this research is to make a general framework, that when run through one can find a suitable measure to make a particular area in Myanmar flood proof. Myanmar suffers from yearly floods that have a huge impact on the population. Making an area flood proof is therefore one of the objectives of the civilian government. In this...

The objective of this thesis was analyzing and evaluating different sources of wave data. Wave data from two hindcasts, satellite altimetry and wave buoys were compared with each other in order to validate different data sets. These datasets provided to be useful tools in determining the wave climate along the coast of Myanmar.

A 2Dnumericalmodel is set-up for the tidal bore in the Sittaung River. This model is used to analyse the effect of the bottom friction, bathymetry, tidal range and river discharge on the propagation of the tidal bore. To obtain information about the tidal bore the Sittaung River is visited two times. During the second visit, depth measurements...

First estimations for the groundwater recharge in the Chindwin basin in Myanmar are presented in this report. This estimations are based on base flow separation and a SWAT model. Multiple base flow separation methods are applied and these are compared with the base flow produced by the SWAT model. This first estimations show a range of 248-670...

The Ayeyarwady River (also called Irrawaddy River) is the most important river of Myanmar and due to the country’s rapid development it is expected to become even more important. The river flows roughly from north to south through Myanmar and is very dynamic and mostly unregulated. With a length of 2170 km and an over the year average (highly...

Coastal erosion in Myanmar causes the coastline to retreat, which increases the flood risk for those who live near the coast. Lack of data about the coastline retreat makes it difficult to design proper flood protection measurements (UNFCC 2007). Since Myanmar is a relative poor country traditional measuring techniques, such as laser mapping,...
