MetadataShow full item record
In Tanzania rivers are mainly utilized for hydroelectric power supply, urban and rural water supply and for irrigation. The basic data required for assessing the potential of the rivers are long records of rainfall and streamflow. In most developing countries including Tanzania, there is inadequate hydrometeorological data. Generally there are relatively longer records of 24 hour rainfall data together with few records from autographic stations.
