Transcript

  • 1. CPWF-NBDC biophysical research Setup of hydro-meteorological monitoring stations in Jeldu, Diga and Fogera District Birhanu Zemadim and the team NBDC Stakeholder Forum 5 October 2011
  • 2. Research Sites
    • In areas (called “study landscapes”) representing dominant agro-ecological zones and farming systems
    Fogera: a relatively high potential, market-oriented, rice–based system); Jeldu; a relatively low-potential system with steep agro-ecological gradients Diga/Dapo: a relatively high potential system with poor market access but with high value crops and livestock potential
  • 3. Hydro-Meteorological equipments installed in the watersheds
    • Soil moisture probes
      • Volumetric moisture content
    • Automatic and manual flow gauges
      • Water level record
    • Weather stations
      • rainfall, temperature, relative humidity, wind speed and wind direction, solar and net radiation and soil temperature
    • Ordinary rain gauges
      • Daily records of rainfall
    • Ground water monitoring devices
      • Water table heights
  • 4. Factors considered for establishing monitoring stations at all watersheds…
    • Land use and land cover conditions
    • Catchment slope
    • Drainage pattern
    • Agronomic conditions
    • Indigenous knowledge of local climatic pattern
    • Catchment boundary and,
    • Safety
  • 5. Jeldu District-Meja Watershed
    • AWS
    • Five ordinary rain gauges
    • Eighteen wells to monitor GW
    • Eighteen soil moisture monitoring sites
    • Three stream water level recording sites (one automatic and three manual)
    Data has been collected since July 2011
  • 6. Diga District-Dapo Watershed
    • AWS
    • Four ordinary rain gauges
    • Fifteen wells to monitor GW
    • Fifteen soil moisture monitoring sites
    • Stream water level recording sites (automatic and manual)
    Data has been collected since middle of August 2011
  • 7. Fogera District-Mizewa Watershed
    • AWS
    • Five ordinary rain gauges
    • Ten wells to monitor GW
    • Ten soil moisture monitoring sites
    • Stream water level recording sites (automatic and manual)
    Data has been collected since September 2011
  • 8. GIS map for all monitoring stations will be available soon
