Questions & Answers

| Ask a Question
Do I need Renter's Insurance?
The customer is responsible for insurance coverage based on the replacement cost of the unit.
How late can I rent the RiverSurveyor with Same Day shipping?
The cutoff time for same day shipments on the RiverSurveyor is 12pm EST.
Why do I need the Hydroboard?
The HydroBoard allows for controlled speed and tracking for quality ADP discharge measurements. The board can be towed across a canal or stream in most flow conditions.
How do I communicate with the RiverSurveyor M9?
The RiverSurveyor M9 can communicate via an RS-232 cable, USB adapter, or Bluetooth. RiverSurveyor Live! Software for Windows is included for use on a laptop or field computer.
Does the RiverSurveyor M9 rental package come with a RTK GPS rover unit? Also, will the software still be valid on my computer past the rental time for further data evaluation and exporting needs?
The RiverSurveyor M9 system in our rental pool has the DGPS, which is accurate to approximately 10 ft. It is not available with the RTK option. Keep in mind that the GPS data is only used as a back-up correction source when making discharge measurements. The primary correction source is the Bottom-Tracking, which is more accurate unless you are working in moving bed situations. If your interest is more for a hydrographic survey, we also have the HydroSurveyor system in our rental pool. This system includes the ADCP with boat mount and 10m cable. The cable includes a serial connector for integrating with a user-supplied RTK GPS if desired.

The software is license-free, and thus will be valid following the rental for further data evaluation and exporting needs.

Rounded pebbles give evidence of past flowing water on Mars

NASA's Curiosity rover has found pebbles that appear to have been rounded by streamflow, according to a release from University of California Davis. Experts say the finding represents the first on-site evidence of sustained flowing water on Mars. The rounded pebbles discovered are only known to form when transported through water over long distances. Their discovery supports theories that the red planet could once have supported life. The smooth rocks were found between the north rim of the planet’s Gale Crater and the base of Mount Sharp, a mountain inside the crater. Researchers say they chose Gale Crater for study because there was a sediment deposit there that typically requires water to form.

U. Delaware studying tidal flow, sediment movement in salt marshes

University of Delaware scientists are studying the impacts that rising sea levels might have on marsh ecosystems in the future, the University of Delaware has reported . Scientists predict that rising sea levels could convert marshes into intertidal flats. These conversions could drastically change land composition by stripping sediment from the land, which could alter water quality by exposing substantial quantities of sequestered carbon and pollutants. Researchers are monitoring the fluctuations of water flow and sediment concentrations in Delaware’s Brockonbridge Marsh.

Acoustic instruments help sort out a Western reservoir's sediment

The reservoir that helped turn Lewiston, Idaho, into into one of the country's most unlikely West Coast port cities is filling up with sediment. Federal environmental agencies are turning to an unlikely monitoring technology to better understand the sources of sediment upstream. The navigational structures built into the Lower Granite Dam, completed in 1974, opened Lewiston to oceangoing vessels traveling up the Snake River. At 465 river miles away from the Pacific, that made Lewiston the country's farthest-inland West Coast port. Since the dam was finished, around 75 million cubic yards of sediment have accumulated in the reservoir, according to Molly Wood, a surface water specialist with the U.S. Geological Survey's Idaho Water Science Center.
