Encouraging results from sea water quality investigations off southern Myanmar
A research paper by Myanmar scientists, looking into coastal water quality off Myanmar, throws light on some physicochemical properties of sea water in one of the BOBLME Project’s key transboundary habitats, the Myeik Archipelago. The research, undertaken in the course of completing the national report on marine pollution commissioned by the BOBLME Project, was conducted by 14 scientists, led by Prof Dr Kyaw Naing of the Department of Chemistry at Yangon University. The results have now been published in the Thai Environmental Engineering Journal Special Volume January-April 2012, under the title Some Physicochemical Properties of Sea Water in Tanintharyi Coastal Zone, Myanmar.
