A typical recommendation has been the two-point method on 15 verticals. To reduce the time required to make a measurement of discharge in large rivers, Smoot and Novak4 introduced the moving boat method. In this technique a boat traverses a river, being steered so as to keep on a given section line.

Your idea won't work in that form, because to get the water into a bucket (above the water level) you will have to pump it in, and that tells you nothing. There is no easy way. The problem is that the velocity of the water depends enormously on wh. Abstract. A two-dimensional tidal model for shallow waters using measured velocity cross-profiles on the open boundaries is described. Comparisons of numerical results with measured field-data are performed. The influence of model parameters on the calculated flow fields is discussed. There are several ways to calculate the flow rate of a river: * The traditional method: start defining a cross section stretching a line across the stream. Then, at regular intervals along the cross section you measure the depth of water, a gradua.

Streamflow is the combined result of all climatological and geographical factors that operate in a drainage basin. It is the only phase of the hydrological cycle in which the water is confined in well-defined channels which permit accurate measurements to be made of the quantities involved. l COMPUTATION OF WATER-SURFACE PROFILES IN OPEN CHANNELS By Jacob Davidian Book 3 Measurement of discharge by moving-boat method, by G.
