Dilution Method

The hydrometeorological surveys of Kazakhstan, Kirgizstan, Uzbekistan and Tadjikistan were supported in thefield of discharge measurements in mountainous rivers by transferring know-how and infrastructure.
The most appropriate method for the determination of discharge in turbulent mountainous rivers is the dilution method using salt or fluorescent dye tracers.
After preparation, transport and installation of the necessary field and laboratory equipment in Almati, Bishkek and Tashkent, regional experts were trained in the application of the Swiss methods. Examples for the use of tracer hydrology for investigations of ground water flow, pollutant transport in rivers, dilution processes in rivers and lakes as well as flow path in glaciers and flow in karstic regions were presented.
