MSc Thesis Rizky Moes: Modelling Peak Flow at 10-minutes Resolution in the Upper Ciliwung Catchment, Indonesia The Indonesian capital city of Jakarta is a typical delta city suffering from regular riverine flooding (Figure 1), usually in the peak of the wet season (November to January). One of the causes is the still ongoing structural increase of the peak discharge intensity of the rivers crossing the city due to land use change in the upstream parts of the catchments, steep mountainous areas (±3000m +MSL) in the south of Java island.

Application of remote sensing and citizen science in monitoring water resources in the Red River Delta - fieldwork activities Application of remote sensing and citizen science in monitoring water resources in the Red River delta - fieldwork activities The objectives of the fieldwork were to validate the certainties of the results estimated by remote sensing analysis and to maintain the involvement of citizen in a data provider system which is jointly using the two free data sources: 1) remote sensing and 2) citizen science. It can be concluded that continuous measurements of some water parameters in the Red River Delta are important to persistently build a dataset for both research and training. Annual activities continuously organised by HUNRE are building a bigger database and are better providing educational services. Small funding prove that it certainly can provide many supportive activities if it is reasonably used.
