Freshwater is a finite resource. It offers goods and services of fundamental importance for the development of human societies. In the developing countries, water-related infrastructure developed rapidly, which will bring prosperity to an impoverished country but also risks compromising the sustainability of the environment. The scarcity of...

Myanmar lacks a water quality monitoring system to monitor changes in water quality in the Ayeyarwady Basin. This study aims to find to what extent changes in water quality can be measured in the Ayeyarwady basin and to identify requirements for a water quality monitoring system. In this study, the current water quality monitoring systems of the...

The validation of satellite retrieved soil moisture over a tropical region (Bago, Myanmar) has been conducted in this research. The downscaled soil moisture products of VanderSat using the Land Parameter Retrieval Model, were compared with an in-situ soil moisture network that operated between 2017 and 2018 and a newly placed network installed...

The Gulf of Mottama, located in the southwest of Myanmar, is home to morphologically interesting processes. An entrance of around 100 km wide narrows into a funnel­shaped bay towards the Sittaung River in the north. The entire estuary region is subject to strong dynamic morphological activity which is alleged to be driven by the large tidal...

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...

Intensive and incessant disruptions in watercourses such as dams are taking place due to the growing demand for hydroelectric generation, and can result in severe deterioration of ecosystem integrity. This research concentrates on the impact of dams on macroinvertebrate communities downstream of two hydropower dams on tributaries of the upper...

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...

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...

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...

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 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,...

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...

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...

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...

Inhabitants and ecosystems in delta areas are becoming increasingly vulnerable to the effects of subsidence, triggered both by natural causes and anthropogenic causes. Yangon is a city in 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....

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...

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.

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...
