Back in November, we reported that LOCSS team member Faisal Hossain was working to expand the LOCSS program to Bangladesh. We are pleased to report that our partners at the Bangladesh Water Development Board (BWDB), in collaboration with HMRC, have installed gauges in three seasonal lakes in Bangladesh, called haors. On May 17, we received the first height measurement for one of these lakes, Korchar Haor in northeast Bangladesh. This was the first measurement we have received for a lake from outside of the United States!
We share stories about the lakes in our study, our partners and volunteer citizen scientists, as well as interesting results from our research.
