Study of South American watersheds and their impact on global climate change
The AMSudSAT project aims to produce a monitoring of the quantity and quality of water in the Amazon basin at the disposal of the Brazilian water agency ANA, with a real decision-making tool to observe and evaluate the water resource in the basin.
The project also involve Paraguay, to identify a work plan for the Paraná river basin and the transfer of the methodology and hydrological modelling tools as a starting point. Moreover, as 100% of Paraguay's electricity production is generated by the Itaipu dam, the country needs to know how much water is stored in neighboring countries: AMSudSat will propose indicators for monitoring hydroelectric dam.
