To ensure that analysis method of SSC (suspended sediment concentration) for all member countries with quality-controlled and standardized data, the establishing a simple laboratory for each country adapted. Based on this commitment, a simple lab in Cambodia, Lao PDR, Thailand and Vietnam well well established for SSC analysis.
Outcome of the projection was providing each country to have capability on analyzing suspended sediment concentration themselves with resulting in standardized analysis using the same method on SSC for better quality-controlled and data use. For this, in Cambodia a simple laboratory was established at the Department of Hydrology and River Works, while in Lao PDR was established at the Department of Meteorology and Hydrology. In the Thailand, the laboratory in Chiang Sean was upgraded for SSC analyses, while in Viet Nam the laboratory was established at Chau Doc.
