Abstract:
Pahang River flows from its upstream at Cameron highlands to its downstream at Pekan into the South China sea. The hydrodynamics of Pahang river as well as data on the long term variation of its water level, rainfall and river flow from the year 1980 to 2009 have been identified based on analysis at three gauging stations, namely the Sg. Yap, Temerloh and Lubuk Paku Gauging Stations. The highest of the total rainfall was triggered by the Northeast Monsoon which occurs from November to March yearly. The average monthly water level of the Pahang River at Sg. Yap ranged from 43.49 m (July) to 45.36 m (Dec.), at Temerloh from 24.73 m (August) to 26.71 m (Dec.) and at Lubuk Paku from 12.70 m (July) to 15.23 m (Dec.). The recorded monthly rainfall at Sg. Yap was from 106.67 to 254.01 mm, while at Temerloh it was from 93.75 to 219.83 mm and at Lubuk Paku from 79.81 to 324.57 mm. The average monthly discharge of the Pahang River at Sg. Yap was 845.78 m3 sec-1, while at Temerloh it was 1008.50 m3 sec-1. At Lubuk Paku, the recorded monthly discharge was 1184.46 m3 sec-1. At least five critical points coincided with the flood events along Pahang River from the year 1980 to 2009.
