Lowering the Cost of Continuous Streamflow Monitoring
This Prize Competition will seek new and innovative methods to significantly reduce cost of continuous streamflow monitoring compared to current methods, including new methods or technologies that reduce the equipment costs and/or labor costs of streamflow monitoring. Methods must be applicable to continuous monitoring of the volumetric flow rate of water in open channels, including natural channels (e.g., streams and rivers) and engineered channels (e.g., aqueducts, canals, and drainage channels). Methods should be applicable across wide range of flow rates, channel sizes, and channel geometries, and the accuracy and reliability of methods should be comparable or better than commonly used stage-discharge methods.
