21- 24 September 2021 (4 half days 9 am – 1 pm)
This very practical training workshop is for new starters and moderately experienced ADCP users alike.
We will provide a live interactive learning experience via Zoom with virtual breakout rooms. We will also provide recorded videos demonstrating several of the field techniques. These will show deployment of equipment and the collection of river discharge measurements with ADCPs.
The course will introduce you to how ADCP instruments work. You will learn how to collect river discharge measurements with ADCPs from both Teledyne RD Instruments and Sontek. You will work with data we previously collected using remote-controlled boats and unpowered deployment platforms, with a strong focus on the processing and validation of the data. You will also learn how to trouble-shoot problem data files. We encourage you to submit your data for analysis within the course.
You will also learn how ADCP data can help enable the effective use of other river flow measurement techniques, such as surface velocity methods.
Deadline: September 17, 2021
