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.
