Some main activities - work in the project
Activity 1:  T complete the database for long-term period from the 1960s - present (water and wastewater quality, meteorology, hydrology and human activities) which will be utilized to calculate the carbon fluxes and emission and   validate the modelling process in the past and at the present.
Activity 2: To calculate the carbon fluxes and carbon emission from the Red River; to characterize and identify the variables (geology, rainfall, reservoirs, land use, etc) controlling carbon fluxes and emission from this river.
Activity 3: To apply the SENEQUE/Riverstrahler model which allows relating the water quality and carbon transfers in the drainage network to the constraints resulting from natural and human factors in the Red River watershed. This will allow us to predict the results of the overall water quality and carbon delivery of the river system for different possible future changes in five important aspects: (a) climate change;  b) the impoundment of new large dams; (c) population and urbanization increase; and (d) the changes in land use and the intensification of agricultural practices.
Activities 4:  Organizing workshops, opening public forum and scientific training, enlarging scientific cooperation
