Watershed Description:977,964 km^2 combined Red River, Vietnam Coast and Lower Mekong River drainage areas, which together drain almost all of Vietnam, a small portion of southeast China and portions of Myanmar, Lao PDR, Thailand and Cambodia. 
Calibration Summary: 
Validation Summary:Our validation process demonstrates that the simulated flows are significantly correlated with the gauged inflows into these dams and are able to serve as a good proxy for the inflows into hydropower dams in our baseline energy regression, which captures 87.7% of the variation in monthly power generation.
