FlowTracker2 Training with Janice Landsfeld


During this instructional video, SonTek Product Manager Janice Landsfeld will go step-by-step through the measurement process and show you all the basics of how to set up the FlowTracker2 handheld ADV, how to conduct a measurement, and how to understand the data and quality control parameters you'll be able to view--right on the instrument's color screen.

2018 Wilmington North Carolina Oceans & Coastal Workshop

  SonTek, as well as the other brands that represent the Xylem Analytics family often host training events that allow for water monitoring professionals the chance to get "up close and personal" with some of the latest water monitoring technology available. Our Application Engineers travel the world sharing their knowledge in the goal of helping hydrologists, hydrographers, oceanographers, research scientists and all those collecting water data to make smarter, and defensible, conclusions.

FlowTracker2 Training Series: Chapter 5 - Single Point Measurements

  In this chapter, SonTek Product Manager Janice Landsfeld reviews how to start a single point wading measurement with the FlowTracker2 during the discharge measurement process. She demonstrates the use of pre-measurement graphics to make sure your top-setting wading rod is properly set, the acoustic beam is working, and the sensor is positioned properly before you collect data.

Quantifying Flooding Events with Acoustic Data Scientific Response in a Changing Climate

  Investment in flood and coastal risk management delivers many benefits. With the year 2018 seeming to culminate a trend of increasing extreme weather events and their intensity, water resource professionals are being called to question and respond appropriately in service to their constituents, both public and private, governmental and industrial. To this end, what insights do acoustic data, data analysis techniques and visualization bring us? How can we use these tools to better understand, manage, and model flooding events and their associated impacts?

What SonTek Instrument Should I Use in a River or Stream?

  If you need to collect open channel flow/discharge data in a small-to-medium size river, with all the ADCP options available, it can be a little overwhelming to know just where to begin. Do you need data immediately, or continuous data over a period of time? Is the river deep or wadeable? Do you need to account for rapidly changing flow conditions? These are some of the questions SonTek Product Manager Janice Landsfeld addresses during this short overview of some of the instruments you may consider based on your site configuration and monitoring requirements.

From Coastal Shorelines to the Deep-Blue: Collecting Oceanographic Water Level and Current Data in Times of Change

  The one hour online presentation gathers some of the premier minds of technology development in one “virtual” room to talk about case studies and share updates on the instrumentation being used to measure water level, tides and waves by agencies such as NOAA, USGS, and UK’s Environment Agency, all of whom have relied on this information for years to provide the ocean monitoring/research community actionable data for long-term planning, and in many cases today, emergency response.

RiverSurveyor vs HydroSurveyor: What's the Difference?

  Ever heard the common Thai phrase – “Same, same but different”? Well this applies well to the SonTek RiverSurveyor-M9 and HydroSurveyor-M9, albeit literally. Same hardware, but very different firmware, software and application between the two. Join Product Manager Isaac Jones in this short video as he summarizes the main differences. If you have questions about which is the best for your application, which one to measure river velocity and discharge or map bathymetry, Isaac clears up the differences in this video.

RiverSurveyor 4.0

The New Standard in Collecting Acoustic Stationary and Moving Boat Discharge Data
  RiverSurveyor 4.0: The new standard in collecting acoustic stationary and moving boat discharge data You might have heard about some of the big upgrades to the powerful, multi-frequency RiverSurveyor-M9, but we didn’t want you to take our word for it – the proof is in the data – and we want to share examples on how RiverSurveyor 4.0 has dramatically simplified the data collection process for hydrologists and water monitoring specialists like you!
