the Sulaman Wetland Sanctuary Hydrology Study Phase 1

Went for field work at Sulaman Wetland Sanctuary with

Supervisor and one of the staff

Day 2 - doing one part of the Hydrology Study.

velocity in controlled manner from which flow can be calculated.

Method that been used was selected according to DID (1976)

The purpose of the study is sufficient seawater flow to maintain

salinity levels as to achieve and maintaining a stable and
appropriate hydrology regime for the health and vitality of
natural forest growth throughout the Sanctuary.

Day 3 & 4 - Doing the Permanent Sample Plots (PSPs) within the
area of Sulaman Lake Mangrove Forest Reserve (SLMFR) as to
