    A streamgage is a structure installed beside a stream or river that contains equipment that measures and records the water level (called gage height or stage) of the stream. Streamflow (also called discharge) is computed from measured water levels using a site-specific relation (called a stage-discharge rating curve) developed from onsite water. A permanent house that holds stream gaging equipment - typically a gage of some type, a computer, and a satellite uplink. Frequently a stilling well or a vertical pipe is beneath the gage house. Images on this page are from USGS and NOAA.

    Furthermore, noncontact methods, such as radar, acoustic, and laser methods of sensing water levels, are being developed and tested, and in the case of radar, are commonly used for the measurement of stage. This report describes commonly used gaging-station structures, as well as the design and operation of gaging stations.   A comparative analysis of the accuracy of current technologies used in NPS pollution stream‐gaging applications and their applicability in low‐flow conditions was conducted. Nine stream‐gaging methods were evaluated for their field and laboratory performance and control structures were used as the statistical control.

    Technologies used for the self-calibrating stream flow gauging station need to be accurate, dependable, and provide measurements on a schedule similar or superior to present methods. The stream gauging station located at the mouth of Logan Canyon, in Logan Utah, was chosen for the investigation, design, and analysis of a new stream gauging station.   An innovative automatic stream gaging method. Jr. Hydrol., This brief paper presents an extension of the moving boat method whereby intermediate sized,,treams may be gaged automatically, by means of a moving meter, by remote control with .

The material is grouped under major subject headings called books and further subdivided into sections and chapters; section A of book 3 is on surface-water techniques. Two of the more common methods are the mechanical current-meter method and the Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) method.

In the mechanical current-meter method, the stream channel cross section is divided into vertical subsections and a current meter is used. Investigations of Methods and Equipment Used in Stream-Gaging: Part 1 – Performance of Current Meters in Water of Shallow Depth.

Hydraulic. The techniques and standards for making discharge measurements at streamflow gaging stations are described in this publication. The vertical axis rotating-element current meter, principally the Price current meter, has been traditionally used for most measurements of discharge; however, advancements in acoustic technology have led to important developments in the use of acoustic Doppler.

| 11 Sunday, Septem PRELIMINARY OPERATIONS BEFORE GAUGING Prior site visits, especially for new sites Make sure that the whole stream discharge is measured Secondary branch during flood, for example Find the right gauging site Not necessary at the exact location of the stage gauge, but not too far.

Depending on the gauging method used. The spelling of “gage” is part of our very rich USGS history. InUSGS Director John Wesley Powell met a very forward-thinking graduate student named Frederick H.

Newell. Powell was so impressed that he made Newell the first full-time appointee to the new Irrigation Survey, which was created to investigate the potential for dams and canals in the western U.S.

However, a variety of advanced equipment can also be used to sense stage and measure streamflow. In the simplest method, a current meter turns with the flow of the river or stream.

The current meter is used to measure water velocity at predetermined points (subsections) along a marked line, suspended cableway, or bridge across a river or stream.the Geological Survey.

In the stream- gaging network comprised about 9, eonltinu- ous-record stat,ions. In additi’on, there were Itbout 7, partial-record stations where data on only floodflow or low flow were obtained. Stream gaging is the largest operation among the various hydrologic networks.Investigations of methods and equipment used in stream gaging.
