The event will take place at the Radisson Hotel at 8181 Cambie Road, Richmond, BC with lunch and refreshments provided on Day 2. A networking event will follow on Day 1 at the hotel restaurant and bar.
Come train alongside industry experts on hydrometric techniques and instrumentation used in challenging ADCP flow conditions. This training event focuses on the best practices through a live ADCP demonstration on Day 1 on The Mighty Fraser River. Participants on Day 1 will have the opportunity to watch streamside (weather dependent) or through a Microsoft Team’s live feed at the hotel. Day 2 will allow participants the opportunity to develop their best practices through discussions and presentations by industry experts on the following topics:
Initial Data Review – through standardized data collection platforms and Qrev.
Discussions and Presentations – on best practices around data interpretation for bottom tracking, bank and side lobe interference, water surface extrapolation, and velocity profile
Best Practices – for measurements in challenging environments with surface extrusions
Index Velocity – a presentation on the HADCP index velocity station on the Fraser River
NASH training workshops provide an invaluable discussion forum for hydrometric data collection. Please bring weather appropriate clothing and high visibility vests if planning to attend the outdoor portion of the event on Day 1.
