WP 4000 Water Resources, River System and Water Related Hazards

Objectives


 


Within WISDOM the Work Package 4000 deals with the actual physical processes and impacts in the river system. It is structured in three hierarchical tasks, each providing information about the topics covered and input for the subsequent layers.


 


Objectives


 


Within WISDOM the Work Package 4000 deals with the actual physical processes and impacts in the river system. It is structured in three hierarchical tasks, each providing information about the topics covered and input for the subsequent layers.


 


The upper most task cover aspects of the hydrology of the Mekong in the whole basin thus covering the largest scale in the WP.


 


The second task investigates in the field of flood hydraulics, the integration of remotely sensed data into flood modelling and locally adapted flood risk assessments.


 


The third task deals with environmental aspects of the flooding with respect to xenobiotics and their environmental fate in the flood areas of the Mekong delta.


 


Figure 1 illustrates the structure of the WP with its Tasks and Activities. The structure illustrates as well as demands the close cooperation of the single activities and the partners in the WP. IOn contrast to the remaining Work Packages each single task within WP 4000 is a sub-project on its own lead by different partners.
