Water Resources Publication No. 16 Sungai Tekam Experimental Basin Transition Report July 1980 to June 1983


Title : Water Resources Publication No. 16, DID, 1986
Prepared By : Hydrology Branch of Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID)
Report Owner : Department of Irrigation and Drainage (DID)
Type of Report : Field Of Study
Objectives : Large scale agricultural development has, in recent years, been extended to undulating inland areas. Development of these areas involves the felling of forest, followed by stacking and burning of felled trees and planting of crops.The methods used and the change in landuse have great impacts o river basins which often show changes in short and long-term runoff volumes and timing, and water quality. To monitor these changes, the Sungai Tekam Experimental Basin Study was undertaken with the following objectives: to study the effects o landuse changes on the hydrology of the basin focussing particularly on the various components affected by surface processes, namely, streamflow, sub-surface storage, magnitudes of high and low flows and water yields. to study the effects of landuse changes on soil fertility resulting from the return of organic matter to the soil, infiltration, soil erosion and soil chemical content. to study the effects on water quality from the various stages of agricultural development.
Geographical Location : The Sungai Tekam Experimental Basin is in a selectively logged forest within the Tekam Forest Reserve of the Tun Razak Agricultural Research Centre (TRARC) in Jerantut District, Pahang. It lies between latitudes 3o 53' 45" N - 3o 55' 00" N and longitudes
