ERDC researcher joins State Department delegation to Botswana
The Okavango Delta is fed by the Cubango and Cuito Rivers that originate in Angola, merge and briefly flow through Namibia, before ending in the Okavango Delta in Botswana. The river system is unique because the water that reaches the delta does not empty into the ocean or other body of water — it dead ends into the Kalahari Desert and simply evaporates. Dr. Mark Chappell, U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) senior research physical scientist, traveled to Botswana with a team to assess opportunities for supporting water management and water security in the country’s Okavango Delta Region.
