Entry: Acoustic doppler current profiler (ADCP)

stable

URI: http://codes.wmo.int/wmdr/ObservingMethodTerrestrial/368    

An instrument that uses an acoustic doppler transducer to measure water velocity, depth and vessel path simultaneously and at various depths to compute discharge. The total discharge is computed from the profile information using matrix multiplication.
