BUG has recently taken delivery of a new Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP), enhancing our aquatic remote sensing capabilities.
An ADCP is a hydroacoustic current meter, used to measure water current velocity, discharge and depth by using the ‘doppler effect’ of sound waves being scattered back from suspended particles within the water.
ADCPs are routinely used to measure water velocity and discharge in streams and rivers, as well as in marine environments. They are particularly useful for low flow studies relating to regulated discharges and for assessing habitat availability for a range of species under varying flow scenarios.
We’re very excited to put this new piece of kit to use and look forward to offering our services for a range of applications and clients.
