FlowTracker2: How to Make the Highest-Quality Measurements Using a Wading Device
Original Air Date: Feb 15th, 2016 Presenters: Product Manager, Janice Landsfeld and Senior Hydrologist Daniel Wagenaar
If you’re a hydrologist, scientist or water monitoring professional, chances are access to precise flow/discharge data in varying environmental conditions is important to your organization and the communities you serve. Better data means better decision making – often in situations that are critical and time-sensitive.
You might already be collecting data using the traditional mechanical current meter, or maybe you have hands-on experience with the SonTek FlowTracker or similar wading device. Either way, nothing beats the quality assurance, data accessibility and overall performance of the new FlowTracker2 handheld ADV.
Join SonTek Senior Hydrologist, Daniel Wagenaar and Application Engineer/Product Manager, Janice Landsfeld, as they review the traditional measurement process and how it is changing with technology. You will learn:
