From 2014, CARE-Rescif projects have been conducted in Hochiminh city and surrounding provinces. One of these joint projects is “Assessment trace metals in water and sediment in Saigon basin and study on the correlation between water and sediment” (T-Mtr-2014-85). Objectives of this research are to assess trace metals in water and sediment in Saigon basin and evaluate correlation between water and sediment.
Samples of water and sediment have been taken in dried and rained seasons of the year 2014 and 2015 in Ben Suc, Ben Cui (Hochiminh city) and Phu Cuong (Binh Duong). The research project has been implemented under the leader of Dr. Dang Vu Bich Hanh, Dr. Dinh Quoc Tuc (Faculty of Environment and Natural Research, HCMUT, Vietnam) and Dr. Emilie Strady (LTHE, F-38000 Grenoble, France).

Hoi An, located in central Viet Nam, around 25 kilometres south of Danang (Figure 1), is one of the most beautiful cities of Vietnam. The old town of Hoi An is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site. Since October 2004, this well-known tourist site is under threat by severe erosion.
The automatic weather monitoring station* has been installed at the Asian Center for Water Research (CARE), HCM University of Technology – VNU (10.774551 of latitude and 106.661356 longitude). The CARE-HCMUT weather station records continuous measurement in real-time for key parameters such as: temperature, relative humidity, atmospheric pressure, wind speed/direction, global solar radiation and rainfall.
