Advances in Streamgaging | Reach-Scale Monitoring Experiment (1 of 2)
In this first installment of a two part series, The Arizona Water Science Center has developed new stream gaging methods that would measure flood flows remotely. However, they have to verify the accuracy of these techniques, so they designed an experiment in partnership with the USDA Southwest Watershed Research Center at the Walnut Gulch Experimental Watershed that utilize supercritical runoff flumes as a control to test against the data collected from their sensors. This video introduces the set up to that experiment.
Be sure to look for Part II of this video series to find out the post-flood results and learn how well this method worked!
