Tagging along with colleagues for site survey, as they are working in mapping the urban drainage. I would definitely will not be missing the opportunity for my own research sampling as well. A project I self adopted- out of interest . Slow but ongoing as up to date I haven’t received full funding for the project.
A project close to heart. Tracing non point source pollution in Johor River Basin and now expending the research from sediments to water quality and risk indexes. Johor the state I call my Home. Place also known as the Southern Tiger’s residence.
All started way back in 2017- never underestimate the power of serendipity!!! ( as a close friend of mine- Rob would say). It started by helping out a fellow researcher from NTU- prof Patrick, for his project. Where I initiated to make use of the time and situation to collect some samples. With the help of my research students; off we went for sampling.( check out : https://people.utm.my/vani/personal-information/2/).
We have a few papers coming up.. Wait for it !! am excited to share the results and findings…
now at second stage: expending towards the midstream of the catchment. Flew a drone for arial view etc.
Stay tuned for more updates..
collecting sediment samples by the river bank. Do you know that sediment holds a lot of information within it? including messages on where it is from???
preparing to take off.. can you spot the Drone?
Thanks for the read.
