  • The U.S. Geological Survey and other international agencies have collaborated to conduct laboratory and field validations of acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) measurements of streamflow. Laboratory validations made in a large towing basin show that the mean differences between tow cart velocity and ADCP bottom-track and water-track velocities were −0.51 and −1.10% , respectively. Field validations of commercially available ADCPs were conducted by comparing streamflow measurements made… CONTINUE READING
