Top Reasons You Need the RS5

When You Already Have the FlowTracker, an M9, or other ADCP
  If you're already a SonTek customer, or familiar with the acoustic Doppler technology in general, you might ask yourself, why would I use the RS5 ADCP when I already have another system like a RiverSurveyor-M9, or maybe even a FlowTracker. Well in this video, we're going to give you 5-and-a-half reasons why you would want to go with the RS5 over other flow sensors.

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.

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.

Aquaculture, reef studies, sediment transport and more - Choose the right ADV and use it like a pro!

  The first Acoustic Doppler Velocimeter (ADV) was introduced to the scientific world by SonTek in 1993. It was used primarily in lab environments for controlled studies requiring highly precise single point water velocity data.

Over the years, the ADV family of instruments grew, as well as the locations in which they were being used. Today, while you can still find ADV’s as a standard part of any university hydraulic lab arsenal, you can also find systems actively being used for coastal wave studies, estuarine research and river/stream flow modelling.

A Week in the Life of SonTek Application Engineer Xue Fan

  It’s an exciting job when you get to work with some the most sophisticated environmental water monitoring instrumentation in the world, and help researchers, scientists, engineers, oceanographers and hydrographers collect crucial data to assist in making smart water management decisions.

SonTek Application Engineers do just that – and while their role as developers and educators is in constant flux, it’s a daily adventure – as you’ll see in this short video where we take a look in the day in the life of one of our field specialists, Dr. Xue Fan!
