Intermediate Streamflow Measurements using ADCPs

Course code: USGS-OED-WRD-SW2441
Course title: Intermediate Streamflow Measurements using ADCPs
Description: This 5-day Course is designed to reinforce basic ADCP principles, while covering the latest in instrumentation, techniques, methods, and policies for both SonTek/YSI and Teledyne/RDI equipment. A significant amount of time is spent on data review and measurement quality, providing an excellent opportunity for questions on specific issues the student has encountered. ADCP discharge measurements in moving bed conditions are covered in detail including; use of GPS, loop method corrections, and multiple stationary moving bed corrections. Two afternoons are spent collecting data in the field. Hydrographers who collect or review ADCP discharge measurements could benefit from the shared knowledge in this class. Note: this is not a substitute for the introductory class, "Streamflow Measurements Using ADCP's" (SW1321), which is a requirement for USGS personnel who collect ADCP data (OSW memo 2002.02), but is intended for users that already have some ADCP experience.
