In recent years acoustic flow measurement and flow metering has established itself as the standard method for measurement in many hydrological stations but is also used as the basis for various applications, for example for flood protection and flood forecasting. Ultrasonic flow meters are also used in hydro-engineering constructions. With this almost contact free technology data can be recorded continuously and it provides 24/7 monitoring. Such flow monitoring is particularly important in waterways used for...
Groundwater hydrology is an interpretive science: we can’t observe the aquifers directly so we must interpolate and extrapolate our understanding from water-level measurements taken from observation wells. Stevens has expertise for measuring both water quantity and water quality.
Water resource management refers to the conservation, custody and transport monitoring of water as a natural resource. Measurements are made to quantify water for the purpose of protection, forecasting, management, lawmaking, enforcement, policymaking, resource allocation and public reporting. Stevens has been providing quality products for water management for over 100 years.
From simple manual rainfall collection devices, electronic tipping bucket rain gauge sensors, through to fully autonomic stand alone data logging systems with telemetry for hydrological network applications.
Climate change makes for more extreme weather. The main reasons for this are wind and precipitation.That is why an increasing number of meteorological and hydrological monitoring networks are coming together. Global coverage with hydro-meteorological measuring technology is varied. Very old and very modern (new) measuring networks are used for climate monitoring worldwide. And there are still large gaps, for example on the oceans.
