sontek webinar flood drought header

As the world reels from increasing climate extremes, this one-hour online event will look at examples of discharge data collected by SonTek ADCPs in extreme conditions worldwide. From recent flood events in Australia and the United Kingdom to record-breaking drought conditions in the Southwest United States, we will review unique applications and discharge data from sites experiencing record-breaking floods to a desert wash amid an extreme drought. Join Environmental Solutions Flow Segment/SonTek Manager Isaac Jones, and Senior Application Engineer Dr. Xue Fan as they:

  • Share application stories and real-world data collected by leading environmental water monitoring agencies.
  • Discuss the challenges faced by monitoring professionals as the intensity of weather events increases.
  • Provide information on choosing your moving boat track reference for the best data – bottom track versus GNSS options.
  • Offer advice on managing a growing concern over personnel safety during extreme event measurements.
  • And more!

Who should attend:

Beginners to advanced level environmental monitoring professionals interested in various methods of flow and discharge data collection with acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) technology, along with those interested in multi-frequency ADCPs that are ideal when river and stream landscapes change during flood events and convenient and portable options for when you need to move fast (and safely!).

Please register for the live event or watch it later when convenient for you.
