The OTT MF pro is a user-friendly, low maintenance electromagnetic flow meter for cost-efficient in-stream discharge measurement. The OTT MF pro saves time and resources in the field by automatically calculating discharge (based on USGS and ISO methods) and graphing velocity data in real-time, allowing trends to be visualized quickly. The rod-mounted meter with color screen captures all data, allowing measurements to be taken by one person and eliminating the need for handwritten calculations or post-measurement data correction.

A small, detachable electromagnetic sensor is ideal for use in low-flow environments by eliminating the need for minimum velocity requirements, and measurements are taken directly at the sensor head rather than from a sample volume farther away. The electromagnetic sensor has no moving parts, is virtually maintenance-free, and requires no calibration, unlike mechanical meters.

Additionally, electromagnetic sensors are preferred for use in conditions with large amounts of organic matter as their magnetic inductive measurement principle is not affected by organic matter in the sampling area like acoustic or mechanical meters. Electromagnetic sensors are a cost-effective option for budget-conscious monitoring organizations, making the OTT MF pro a practical choice for discharge measurement in a variety of environmental applications.

 

Discharge automatically calculated: the OTT MF pro computes discharge automatically based on USGS and ISO methods, saving time and eliminating potential for error caused by written transcription

Real-time velocity: velocity is graphed in real-time on the meter's color display, allowing trends to be visualized quickly

Maintenance-free: the electromagnetic sensor head has no moving parts and never requires calibration, making it virtually maintenance-free

Versatile applications: the sensor's magnetic inductive measurement principle makes the OTT MF pro ideal for use in low-flow conditions and environments heavy in organic matter, unlike mechanical or acoustic meters

User-friendly handheld: a lightweight, water-resistant handheld features a full color display that is easily readable even in bright sunlight

Questions & Answers
Does the wading rod or velocity sensor come with the water flow meter?

No, the wading rod and velocity sensor are sold separately.

What is good about electromagnetic vs mechanical meters?

Electromagnetic sensors generally require less maintenance, do not require calibration and have no moving parts.

What is the battery life of this meter?

The meter has about an 18 hours and are rechargeable.

Does my Flow Meter store data?

The OTT MF pro Flow Meter stores up to 10 profiles (metering sites) with 32 vertical profiles per site. Data can be downloaded to a PC via a simple USB connection.

How long will my battery last?

The OTT MF pro Flow meter has a rechargeable lithium-ion battery that has approximately 18 hours of battery life.

Is the MF pro flow meter waterproof?

Yes, the OTT MF pro flow meter has an IP rating of IP67, protecting the meter against short periods of immersion in water.

What is the warranty on the MF pro?

The MF pro flow meter and sensors are covered by a 1-year manufacturer's warranty against defects in materials and workmanship.

Shapeshifting Rivers: The First Global River Delta Migration Database Offers Future Glimpse of the Planet’s Major Coastal Waterways

When we think of a river’s movements, we often think of its current. But rivers move in other ways too, ways that can have profound consequences to those living around them. If a river’s centerline shifts, especially if it shifts a lot, the impact can be huge, and devastating to human populations that depend on the river as a place to fish, farm, and settle. The Ganges River in India, for example, supports 650 million people who have their homes, families, and livestock gathered at its banks. As the river changes in the future due to the impact of climate and anthropogenic factors, it is of critical importance for the population living by the Ganges—or any other major river--to know what the changes will be to best prepare for a potentially radically different future.

New Technologies Reducing Uncertainty in Estimation of River Flow

Some of the most interesting data in the world of river and stream monitoring come at times when it's practically impossible to capture—during extreme weather events, for example. Timing alone makes capturing unusual events a challenge, and these kinds of issues have prompted researchers to use classic monitoring data along with new technologies to develop and improve hydraulic modeling for estimating river flows. Steven Lyon , a Conservation Scientist with The Nature Conservancy, Professor at Stockholm University and Associate Professor at The Ohio State University, spoke with EM about the research .

Citizen Scientists Tracking Intermittent Rivers

Most of the time when we think of monitoring streams and rivers, we think of water, and for a good reason. However, in some parts of the country, many rivers are intermittent—dry at some point in space or time—and  therefore have not had equal amounts of attention from ecologists and hydrologists. A project led by a University of Oklahoma (OU) team is working to change that with the help of citizen scientists. OU assistant professor of biology Daniel Allen spoke to EM about the project and why it's so important to track intermittent rivers. “ The Nature Conservancy (TNC) started the Citizen Science program in Arizona's San Pedro River and the nearby Cienega Creek in, I think, 2001,” details Dr. Allen.
