The workshop of Symposium on Equipment for Water and River Research

Recently, the Climate Change Institute and the Faculty of Engineering - Technology - Environment organized the international workshop of Symposium on Equipment for Water and River Research.

This workshop is the program of “Stimulation of watershed topographic changes and diagnosis of lanslide risk zones in An Giang province”, an A-level research topic of VNU-HCM conducted by Dr. Nguyen Tran Nhan Tanh, the Leader of the Climate Change Institute. 
The workshop is held online and offline. This activity attracted scientists from Deakin University, Australia (Australia), Yang Ming Chiao Tung University (Taiwan), Jade University of Applied Sciences (Germany), Asian Institute of Technology (Thailand) and Deparments. Postgraduate students (PhD) and students of the Faculty of Environment from institutes and  schools in Viet Nam and abroad also joined in this meeting.
The experts discussed and shared new research of water and river in order to find the solutions for the sustainable development of the Mekong Delta under the impacts of climate change. 
The workshop focused on 5 main issues such as Monitoring  stormwater treatment assessment, A Study to Estimate the Pier Scours by a Triaxial Accelerometer, Maritime optics for water assessment, Combining interpolation approaches and Acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) to assess river morphological changes, Livelihood Security in Lower Mekong Basin and Resilience pathways in changing climate, and Greenhouse gas estimation for agriculture using Landscape DNDC.
The scientists of the Climate Change Institute, AGU and Jade University of Applied Sciences (Germany) also proceeded field researches in the Mekong river.
