The seasonal Chindwin river (Myanmar) forms the central artery for transportation in the region. However, the dynamic river behaviour, archaic boat equipment and limited monitoring, yearly results in large numbers of grounding ships, causing injuries and economic losses. A pilot project involving CoVadem technology was initiated in the beginning...

Anthropogenic pressures such as river infrastructure, agriculture and power generation are rapidly increasing in Southeast Asia, aimed at providing food security within the region. However, this will lead to unintended river health consequences, and, currently, most Southeast Asian countries have no country-specific tools for monitoring river...

The Mekong river is one of the largest rivers in the world, which flows through six countries of Southeast Asia (China, Myanmar, Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam). Its hydro-sedimentary regime is changing rapidly, as a consequence of a regional shift of land use (agriculture, road, etc.), damming, sand mining and climate changes, among...

Understanding the river dynamics is very important to be able to make use of all river functions and to protect ourselves against floods. Hydrodynamic models are used to predict river behaviour and one of the input parameters is the river geometry. In-situ measuring of river geometry can be very expensive and time consuming. Remote sensing...

This thesis research has been conducted to analyse the sediment dynamics in the Yangon Estuary, in order to define the cause for the sedimentation in Monkey Point Channel. For years, Yangon Port has been suffering from limited accessibility due to the sedimentation in the channel and currently daily dredging is required in order to let ships...

Hydrological modifications to the natural flow regime through the regulation of a river threaten the integrity of river ecosystems. In Myanmar, the exponentially growing hydropower sector poses a threat to the ecohydrology of some of the last large free-flowing rivers in the world. This study investigates to what extent the natural flow regime...

In an emergency, humanitarian organisations share information to prevent redundant data collection and avoid gaps and overlap in the relief activities that they undertake. An analysis of hygiene kit distribution in the Bangladesh-Myanmar displacement crisis and consultation of both literature and humanitarian professionals led to the...

Newly developed mobile phone applications in combination with citizen science are used in different fields of research, such as public health monitoring, environmental monitoring, precipitation monitoring, noise pollution measurement and mapping, earth observation. In this paper, we present a low-cost water quality mobile phone measurement...

Inhabitants and ecosystems in delta areas are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of subsidence, caused by anthropogenic activities. Yangon is a city on the periphery of the Irrawaddy delta in Myanmar where little is known about the true extent of this hazard, while its effects can potentially harm millions of its inhabitants. This...

Managing a multi-reservoir system is complicated, due to conflicting interests among various objectives. This study proposes an optimization-based approach for the operations of a multi-reservoir system. An advanced real-time control technique, Model Predictive Control (MPC), is adopted to control a multi-reservoir system with two control...

Myanmar, formerly known as Burma, is a country in Southeast Asia with a population close to 60 million people, which suffers from underdeveloped infrastructure. With the change of government and restoration of democracy starting from 2011, policy reforms are anticipated leading to large-scale economic development and growth. This growth is...

The typically mild slopes of the muddy coastline in the south of Myanmar, enable the tide to propagate deep into the mainland, carrying muddy and saline water. The Nga Moe Yeik Creek (a tributary of the Yangon River) is closed off at the upstream end during the dry season and is subject to high siltation rates. Extensive dredging is necessary to...

To study large-scale patterns in the environment, like for example the change of water quality, a constant amount of data over an array of locations and time is required. However, in Myanmar only little data is available about water related topics which makes it hard to monitor changes that are taking place. A relative new and cheap way of...

The Ayeyarwady River is the most important river in Myanmar, connecting the cities Mandalay and Yangon, making inland water transport economically attractive. The Ayeyarwady River has a dynamic character, caused by the significant discharge difference between the dry and rainy season, and the related suspended sediment transport. Point bar...

The beach at Ngapali, Myanmar is eroding, resulting in a shoreline which moves landward. The coastline gets closer to the vegetation each year and during the monsoon season, at high tide, it reaches the palm trees completely. The assumption is that this is due to people shovelling truckloads of sand from the beach to use for construction, this...

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,...

Sustainable land and water management in Myanmar are desired since the country is rapidly changing. An analysis of the discharge data and an estimation on the groundwater recharge are desired to obtain this. In this paper, the discharge data of seven gauge stations in the Irrawaddy river are analyzed. Also, a method is described to estimate the...

Water level data is a key factor in water systems research. Frequently measuring water levels in areas with tidal influence is especially desirable because it enables observations to follow the rise and fall between minimum and maximum water level. However, a majority of developing countries are not able to measure water levels at the desired...

Healthcare services in the developing countries are suffering from lack of equipment, expertise and infrastructure. Sexual reproductive health is one of these health areas in which the public health sector is not meeting the growing demand and it is defined as unmet need for family planning. To address this need, international agencies have been...
