THE MEASUREMENT OF TIDAL WATER TRANSPORT IN CHANNELS

R.E. Klein

Abstract


For the electromagnetic flow measurement in straits, channels etc use is made of the electric potential difference between two points m the bottom, near the moving water. The potential difference can be put down to natural causes the water is an electric conductor and moves m the magnetic field of the earth There are a number of quantities and variables that are of importance for the measured signal Beside this, the measurement is above all a matter of eliminating some disturbances Information about the two measuring systems as applied m The Netherlands is given m this article.
