Tonle Sap lake has been the largest fresh water lake in Southeast Asia, providing a fundamental environment for nurturing more than three million people in the five surrounding provinces, which about 90% lived from the fishery or agriculture. However, the ecosystem and populations living around the lake have experienced environmental pressure, since the lake water, fishes, living organisms are polluted. More than that, sediment is the type of soi

Pesticide residues in surface water, sediment and fish samples from Chnok Tru Floating Community of Tonle Sap Lake (TSL) was determined. Surface water and sediments from 18 sites were collected while 10 fish species were sampled from different locations of Chhnok Tru Floating Village. Samples were extracted by solid-phase extraction method using PLS3-AC2 cartridge and were subjected to analysis by GC-MS with an automated identification and quanti

Assessing the characteristic of soil properties is important for various purposes, especially for agriculture. The spatial distribution mapping for soil properties in Chrey Bak Catchment can be generated by geospatial analyst (Ordinary Kriging) methods with different semivariogram models: Gaussian model, Exponential model, Pentaspherical model and Hole effect model. The objectives of this study are to: (i) compare and evaluate the most accurate i

This study aims to assess flow regime alterations under climate change scenarios in the Stung Chinit river basin, one among tributaries of the Tonle Sap Great Lake, Cambodia. Five bias-collected regional climate models (RCMs) under RCP4.5 and RCP8.5 using quantile mapping technique were employed into the Soil and Water Assessment Tool (SWAT) model to quantify changes in future hydrologic characteristic. Three future time horizons —the 2020s, 2050

Understanding the aquifer hydraulic properties and hydrochemical characteristics of water are crucial for the management plan and study skims in Cambodia, where groundwater has been used for domestic and agricultural purposes in the rural area. In this study, there are two times observed well during late wet season October 2017 and early wet season May 2018. Water Quality Index (WQI) was use to assess of groundwater for drinking and SAR, KR, SSP,

In Cambodia, rice liquors or Sra Sor is locally produced in large amounts every year. This traditional beverage is made from the combination of rice starch with different traditional starters consisting of molds and fermenting yeast. Recently, the quality and the ethanol yield of rice wine produced by traditional starter were notably low. Thus, the utmost concern is to improve the quality of the product in terms of physicochemical and sensory pro

The study was carried out on detection of Enterococcus spp. in fermented and pickled vegetable products from markets in Phnom Penh and determination of their antibiotic resistance. Thirty-nine samples were collected from six different sites and classified into six categories of fermented and pickled vegetable products. Samples were subjected to physicochemical and microbiological analysis, followed by isolation and antibiotic susceptibility test

Soy sauce is a liquid condiment originated from China and is widely used not only in China, but also in Asia including Cambodia. Although some soy sauces have been produced in Cambodia, their quality has not yet been widely recognized in Cambodia and the study of soy sauces in Cambodia is still limited. The objective of this survey aimed to collect information about the current status on soy sauce consumption in Cambodia, for future research and

White pepper (Piper nigrum L.) is commonly used in food products such as light-colored sauces, soups, salad dressing, and mayonnaise. In general, white pepper is produced by water retting that is known as traditional method. Therefore, this study focused on the optimization of white pepper processing from green pepper berries by pectinase enzyme. It was conducted in different pretreatment time (0, 5, 10 min), incubation at 40 °C for 16 hours and

Biomass briquette is made from many types of biomass materials such as rice husk and bagasse which is partially the city waste; however, they are potential energy sources and widely available in Cambodia. Rice husk and bagasse are becoming one of the useful energy sources to help reducing organic waste in the city once being converted into a ready-to-use form. In addition, to form the rice husk and bagasse to be in briquette shape, binding materi
