Current and tide measurements consist of the precise measurement of the direction and speed of the water current in rivers, lakes or at sea. Geophysics GPR owns several types of current meters, for different water conditions, including systems for vertical current profiling.
The current meters are capable of measuring with precision, the speed and direction of current, as well as depth (for use as a tide gauge) at set intervals over the period of several days. Vertical current profiles can also be measured.
Typical applications of current and tide measurements include:
- Port redevelopment studies;
- Geotechnical studies;
- Environmental studies.
