Automatic Discharge Measurement of Lowland Weedy Streams

Jeremy Bulleid, and Thomas Wilding - National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), New Zealand and Hawkes Bay Regional Council , 29 July, 2019

In this article we describe the progress in developing a practical tool to improve the reliable measurement of water flowing in lowland weedy streams. This is part of a Ministry of Business Innovation and Environment (MBIE) Envirolink Tools project being carried out in collaboration with regional councils. We are using air bubbles and Artificial Intelligence (AI) to realise a technology that shifts the paradigm of conventional flow measurement.
