Remote Sensing of Water Levels, Waves and Distances for Lab Applications
Highly accurate remote sensing of water level and waves for.....
Highly accurate remote sensing of steep and very fast moving waves with 4 synchronised sensors
Highly accurate remote sensing of steep and very fast moving waves with a relative velocity up to 15 m/s
Because of its remote sensing technology in combination with its high accuracy and wide detection range almost all kinds of water dynamics (also steep waves/breaking waves) can be recorded
Example of an expected wave or level fluctuation of around 600 mm:
The right task for sensor USS20130 with a measuring range of 200 to 1300 mm
High resolution measurement of a water level
- University of Applied Sciences Suderburg, Germany -
Superposition of two different waves
- VWS Berlin Model Basin -
Planar motion (v=2m/s) towards the incoming wave
- Hamburg Ship Model Basin -
Local reading of a single wave packet
- Potsdam Model Basin -
Measurement at a relative velocity about 10 – 12 m/s
- Maritime Research Institute Netherlands (MARIN) -
Sample rate: up to 75 Hz
Steep waves can be measured with a horizontal speed of 2 m/s against the incoming wave (4 m/s vertical speed)
The system is equipped with 4 synchronised channels. Due to the synchronisation of the channels the sensors can be placed very close to each other. The measuring of wave fields in high resolution concerning time and place are possible with the HF5-A.
Steep and very fast moving waves can be measured with a relative velocity up to 15 m/s
