Effect of dyke construction on water dynamics in the flooding savannahs of Venezuela


A digital elevation model has been developed on a level of the dyked area of the modulo of Hato el Frio. Flooding has been studied at the regional level and a DEM has been developed for the modulo area. For the construction of the DEM various sources were explored for height information. Field measurements with GPS were necessary. In the transition period between the dry and the wet season the distribution of water shows a clear influence of the dyke. The dyke construction has created a large artificial sink. Modulos form sinks by their banks preventing the outflow of the water
