Level, Tide and Wave monitoring by radar
“River water management is becoming, worldwide, more and more an important topic. Extreme hydrological events like flood and droughts have enormous impact on human health and ecosystems.“
In more protected areas, compared to the sea environment, the motions of the water surface can be measured in different ways. It can be done by a Free Space WaveGuide like at sea or if it is more convenient the WaveGuide can be mounted on top of a stand pipe (Stilling Well version). A small hole in the pipe to create a stilling well is not needed.
With the WaveGuide radar on top, the pipe can be completely open. The rapid motions of the water surface are filtered in the WaveGuide server. This gives the opportunity to measure faster phenomena. Cleaning, due to marine growth is hardly needed.
With the available “Tide Processing Software” raw data and parameters can be requested and presented on the web browser at the PC. All data or a selection can be stored in a data logger.
