Empirical Modeling of Spatial 3 D Flow Characteristics Using a Remote-Controlled ADCP System : Monitoring a Spring Flood

The use of acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCP) for measuring streamflow and discharge is becoming increasingly widespread. The spatial distribution of flow patterns is useful data in studying riverine habitats and geomorphology. Until now, most flow mapping has focused on measurements along a series of transects in a channel. Here, we set out to… CONTINUE READING
