One of the most often overlooked sources of errors or issues with river velocity and discharge measurements using an acoustic Doppler current profiling system (ADCP) is site selection. You can get everything right in regard to the instrument operation, installation, etc., but if you have chosen a site where the basic assumptions of ADCP river measurements have been violated, then you will not get accurate data.
