The following photos were originally captured by ICCEM-CLSU PHIL-LiDAR 1 researchers during the hydrological data gathering in Alaminos River Watershed. The activity aimed to generate flood hazard map of the Alaminos Watershed in Pangasinan, Philippines.
Courtesy call at the Barangay Hall of Palamis, Alaminos City, Pangasinan. The photo was taken by Engr. Jose Gavino on November 06, 2015.

Remote Sensing Activities
Researchers of PhilLIDAR1 Engr. Nicasio Salvador, Engr. Jose Gavino and Engr. Eleazar Raneses Jr. were bounding to the north and south coast of the Alaminos river watershed for field validation in Remote Sensing Study. Riding in a bamboo raft (picture A) is one of the means of transportation in going to the study area. A lot of walking such as in pictures B and C were also done by the researchers before reaching one of the sampling points. Photo by Engr. Bennidict Pueyo on November 2015
Alaminos River Mouth
Measuring the distance of one of the point coordinates of the riverbank of the Alaminos upstream. A handheld GPS and a rover were used in locating the exact point coordinates and measuring its distance. This was taken during the filed validation on November 2015.
Some of the highlighted activities at Alaminos Upstream during the field validation of the riverbank:
Lidar 1 researchers, Engr. Nicasio Salvador, Engr. Eleazar Raneses Jr. and Engr. Jose Gavino were heading to the exact location of the sampling point to be validated.

In photo are the members of the research team while measuring the distance.
The presence of the dam was also observed in the Alaminos river upstream during the validation activity. It controls the water level that is being used for agricultural crop production purposes.

Distance measurement of the Alaminos River mouth was done during low tide for ease in the facilitation of the activity. It is a part of the Remote Sensing study to perceive geophysical changes in the river mouth/outlet of the river. The researchers in photo were busy locating and measuring distance in the study area.
