Abstract:

This is the first attempt by the U. S. Lake Survey in applying fluorescent dyes for measurement of the discharge in an open channel. The purposes of the tests were 1 to become familiar with the instrumentation and the use of fluorescent dyes, and 2 to compare the results of the dye method with standard current meter methods. Five tests were run, with three being run simultaneously with standard methods. Author
