Agroclimatology, often also referred to as agricultural climatology, is a field in the interdisciplinary science of agrometeorology, in which principles of climatology are applied to agricultural systems.

Its origins relate to the foremost role that climate plays in plant and animal production. The Mekong river basin is a diverse region, in approximately 70 million people lived across the six countries (CDRI, ). Compared to river basins such as the Ganges-Brahmaputra-Meghna and the Indus average population density is generally low in the Mekong river basin, around 88 inhabitants/km2,File Size: 2MB.

Lao PDR lies almost entirely within the Lower Mekong Basin. Its climate, landscape and land use are the major factors shaping the hydrology of the Size: 2MB.

Other articles where Lower Mekong Basin is discussed: Mekong River: Physical features: The lower Mekong, below the point where it forms the border between Myanmar and Laos, is a stream 1, miles (2, km) in length draining the Khorat Plateau of northeastern Thailand, the western slopes of the Annamese Cordillera in Laos and Vietnam, and most of Cambodia.

The Mekong flows in a pan-shaped basin shaped by regional geology. The upper basin in China is a steep narrow valley and its geometry is determined primarily by Himalayan : Avijit Gupta.

Across the Lower Mekong Basin (LMB), covering portions of Laos, Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam, deforestation has been considerable ranging from land-clearing for strategic purposes during the Vietnam War (Lacombe et al.,Lacombe and Pierret, ) to economic and population growth driving the logging and agriculture expansion for self Cited by: There is not a coherent and integrated geological map of the whole of the Mekong Basin.

Various government agencies of the four countries of the Lower Mekong Basin (Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand, and Viet Nam) have produced excellent maps of the geology of their respective country.

The Mekong Basin in Tibet and Yunnan is a narrow strip where most of the surface originally had little relief but was later deeply dissected to form the gorge of the Mekong and the deep valleys of its short tributaries.

As a result there is a need for a. Agroclimatology the division of climatology concerned with climate as a factor of agricultural production.

Soil and its fertility, dry-land water resources, and vegetation are all determined to a significant degree by climate. Climatic conditions are taken into account in agricultural specialization. The history of agroclimatology is closely tied in.

The Mekong is among the world's longest rivers, flowing 4, kilometers from the Tibetan plateau through six nations to its delta in Vietnam. The river and its tributaries contain the largest freshwater fishery in the world, producing million tons annually, a food chain that relies on the nutrient rich sediment carried by the river.

The river contains between 1, and 1, species. completed in the Upper Mekong mainstem in China inand (Barlow et al. There are more than dams being proposed in the Lower Basin countries of Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam.

Overview of the Hydrology of the Mekong Basin # Compiled by the MRC Water Utilisation Programme (WUP). Based on analysis of data observed between andie including the most recent observations, with numerous tables and charts.

Intended as an introduction to the hydrology of the Mekong River. Among the lower Mekong Basin countries, Laos and Cambodia have been identified as the most vulnerable, in part because of their limited capacity to cope with climate related risks. Climate change is affecting the sustainable development of most developing countries in Asia.

It compounds the pressures on natural resources and the environment. The transboundary Sesan and Srepok sub-basins (2S) are the “hot-spot” areas for reservoir development in the Lower Mekong region, with 12 reservoirs built in the Vietnam territory. This study examines the impacts of reservoir operations in Vietnam and projected climate change on the downstream hydrologic regime of the 2S Rivers by jointly applying the Cited by: B a s in D eve lo p m ent Pla n Progra m m e.
