The Phil-LiDAR 1.2.14 team deployed datalogging sensors in the Mainit-Tubay River Basin last November 12, 2014. The sensors consisted of a rain gauge, a water level logger, and 2D velocity meter. The deployment has the same purpose to the deployment that have been conducted earlier in Cabadbaran River Basin which is to collect long-term hydrological data (rainfall depth, water level, and water velocity) that will be utilized to calibrate and validate the HEC HMS-based hydrologic models of the river basin. The HEC HMS models consist a major component of the flood models that will be produced by the project.
The rain gauge was deployed on the rooftop of Jabonga Municipal Hall while the water level logger and 2D velocity meter were deployed in Calinawan Bridge, Brgy. Colorado, Agusan del Norte (near the outlet of the Lake Mainit).
The deployment was supervised by Engr. Arthur M. Amora (Senior SRS) together with Engr. Ronald Makinano (Research Associate) and was supported by personnel from the Jabonga Municipal Hall and by the locals.
