Kick-off Meeting on “Remote Sensing Application for Northeastern Thailand Water Resources Management” Project Held at RADI
 Date: 2017-08-20  Page Views:

"Remote Sensing Application for Northeastern Thailand Water Resources Management" Project was launched in Beijing on August 4, 2017. The project is led by the State Key Laboratory of Remote Sensing Science (SLRSS) of RADI, and the Thailand counterparts include Khon Kaen University (KKU) and the Geo-Informatics and Space Technology Development Agency (GISTDA).

As an intergovernmental S&T cooperation special program between China and Thailand, the project aims to apply RADI’s remote sensing resources and research advantages in related areas such as water cycle to boost Thailand’s water resource management.

During the kick-off meeting, Prof. SHI Jiancheng, head of SLRSS briefed the development of the laboratory, and introduced the ongoing water cycle observation mission (WCOM). Dr. VichianPlemkamon from KKU and Dr. SitthisakMoukomla from GISTDA introduced Thailand’s water resource research and the construction of its water management system. Both sides reviewed the cooperation objectives & research tasks, and discussed next actions for the project.

Previously, the participants toured the experimental site of Duolun in north China’s Inner Mongolia to understand how ground-based radiometric experiment is conducted, and what kind of landscape is needed for soil moisture calibration/validation studies, with an expectation to build a similar site in Thailand where the data such as soil moisture, precipitation and ET measurements could be collected and used for this project.

Duolun is in the upstream area of the Luan River, which flows northwards from its source in the province of Hebei into the province of Inner Mongolia, and then flows southeast back into Hebei to its mouth on the Bohai Sea.

The tour also covered a visit to the Hydrographic Survey Bureau of Duolun, and the experts from Thailand were shown to know how the local hydrological forecasting facilities works, hydrological station network distribution, hydrological information and information system, water resources survey and evaluation.

The participants paid a brief visit to the Miyun Ground Station in the suburb of Beijing. The ground station is part of China Remote Sensing Satellite Ground Station (RSGS), a RADI housing big science infrastructure.
