Hydrological characterization of benchmark agricultural watersheds in India, Thailand, and Vietnam

An article examining the hydrological behavior of five benchmark agricultural watersheds in India, Thailand, and Vietnam. From the five benchmark watersheds, authors collect and analyse information on topography, rainfall, runoff, groundwater, and other relevant data. The data clearly show the effectiveness of improved watershed technologies in reducing runoff volume and peak runoff rate. The groundwater observations from the three sites in India, clearly show the effectiveness of improved watershed technologies in increasing the groundwater recharge thereby improving the availability of water for agricultural and other uses. The region-specific hydrological data reported in this publication will be useful in the planning, design, development, and management of land and water resources in the target regions.
