Streamflow/Stream Gauging

The goal of this field exercise is to determine the discharge (volume of water per cross-sectional area per time) of a stream at several locations. Any variability in measured discharge with distance downstream will be analyzed for its hydrologic significance. The stream is shallow, slow-moving, and has an artificial bottom (i.e. a very safe setting).
