Title: Measurements of High Streamflow with ADCP
Current river conditions and available equipment make it a challenge to measure streamflow in the White Oak Creek. Hydrologic technicians (not shown) make field measurements of streamflow with an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP), a device that uses sound waves to determine the area and velocity of the water. Rate of streamflow can then be computed from the area and velocity.
