ADCPs – The need for National Conformity

Mark Randall - Qld Dept of Natural Resources and Mines , 22 August, 2012


Not long after joining the department Mark set about learning how to use ADCPs, primarily as a way to avoid getting into crocodile infested waters! He extended his ADCP knowledge to the measurement of suspended sediment and assisted in the definition of a departmental work procedure.

In 2009 Mark received Bureau of Meteorology funding to manage three, one week courses providing hands-on ADCP training to 95% of his department’s hydrographic staff. More recently, further Bureau of Meteorology funding has enabled him to establish the national standard for ADCP measurements, which is the focus of his presentation.
