TELEDYNE RD INSTRUMENTS MEASURING WATER IN MOTION AND MOTION IN WATER
There is a growing need for improved use, control, and availability of inland waters. And meeting this need requires better instrumentation for accurately measuring currents in rivers & lakes, and streams & channels. These instruments must operate reliably and survive in difficult conditions for extended periods. For such conditions, the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) has proven operational and performance advantages. This versatile tool is a single device that can deliver a wide scope of measurements for monitoring water resources. Since 1985, ADCPs have become widely used and accepted by agencies such as United States Geological Survey, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Environment Protection Authority, U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, and numerous state and local government agencies.
ADCP Measurement Capabilities:
River Volume, Flow Rates, Discharge
Distance, Range Depth
Speed/Velocity of Currents/Waves
Spatial Distribution of Sediment Plumes
