OZCAR-RI M-TROPICS/MSEC, Dong Cao
Dong Cao is a small agricultural catchment (47 ha) of northern Vietnam, located at 70 km from Hanoi, in a sloping land environment. The objective is to monitor the impacts of land use changes (from cassava to fodder and tree plantations) and possible climate changes upon hydrologic and sedimentary budgets, fluxes and qualities. The catchment has an elevation of 125m to 485m and slopes ranging from 15 to 120%. Equipments include an automatic meterological station since 2001, 4 weirs to monitor discharge, suspended and bedload since 2001, automatic suspended load samplers.
