Presented at NZ Hydrological Society Technical Workshop 17-20 March 2020
There are two distinct calculation methods used in image velocimetry but how do you choose what’s right for you. This presentation will look to clarify the differences between these methods as well as providing guidance on how best to collect image velocimetry data through fixed cameras and drones.
Mark has been working as a field hydrologist with the Queensland State government since 2006. Based in Mareeba he specialises in remote area field operations and the management of the state governments gauging station network. He has run advanced ADCP training for QLD government hydrographers, established national ADCP technical reference group, produced three national guidelines governing the use of hydroacoustic instrumentation for discharge measurements now endorsed and published by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. In 2014 he worked with Teledyne RD Instruments to help develop Q-view software to provide QA/QC analysis of ADCP discharge measurements based on the matrix developed for the national guidelines.
Mark is currently an active member of the WaMSTeC and its predecessor, the Water Information Standards Business Forum established by the BoM in 2010. He is continuing to advance the use of acoustic Dopplers within water monitoring and is currently working on an ADCP training package.
