The LiDAR 1 Flood Modelling Component (FMC) team conducted a field validation in Morong River, Bataan on July 9-18, 2016. Field validation was conducted to measure the actual size of the width and length of river bank, river outlet and coastlines of the river for the Remote Sensing Study.
Measurement of the width of Morong river outlet (left picture) is part of the validation activity conducted. Using the coordinates provided by the Remote Sensing Component, the actual measurement of the width of the river mouth was measured using GPS-RTK instrument. It was noted in the picture that the left portion of the river mouth is a residential area.

Coastlines of the Morong River were also validated to determine geophysical changes of the study area. Data points in the north and south coastlines were also measured using the GPS-RTK instrument.
