River Morphology/Weather Training

TOPS Algonquin Expedition

measurements
Measurements
  • Width
  • Depth Profile
  • Flow rates (with Probe Technicians)
  • Images (with Imaging Technician)
  • Encoding data on FDS
  • Weather Observations
width
Width
  • With measure with ‘throw’ at location of the dotted line
  • Along same line profile is to be made.
depth profile
Depth Profile

x

River Cross-section

  • Measure profile depths by hand or use the UHT
  • Go out as far as it is safe to do so.
  • If you can cross go in from both sides
  • x should be the same for each division

WCD X3

WCD X2

WCD X1

velocity profile flow rates
Velocity Profile (Flow Rates)

x – same as in depth profile

Measure velocity at same location as depth was measured. WCVx1 …WCVX10

co ordination with other technicians
Images of the water course at the cross-section site.

Bed and Bank Images (2)

Drawings

Provide assistance to artist

Image and such like are to be taken by the trained technician, but you need to tell them where these images need to be taken and to make sure that it has been done.

Co-ordination with other technicians
encoding river data on fds1
Encoding River Data on FDS1

Water Course Speed at X8 – in metres per second (ms-1) with an implied decimal between the two digits.

Water Course Depth at x1 – in metres with an implied decimal point between the two digits

Use a medium point “sharpie” type marker draw in the segments required to form the number that your data requires. You MUST stay on the fine grey lines when doing so. You will be marked on the ability of the AHP computer program to read your scans.

x – in metres with an implied decimal point between the two digits

weather observations
Weather Observations
  • Cloud Type (CT) – Types on code key
  • Cloud Cover (CC) – 0, 10, 20, …, 90%
  • Precipitation (PCP) – Type codes on code key
  • Wind Speed (WS) – in ms-1 – integer units only
  • Wind Direction (WD) – From table in code key

Local Time (24 hr clock)
