Gauge Stations: How do they work?
June 26 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Part of Whitewater Ontario’s River Science for Paddlers webinar series
Gauge stations are common tools used by paddlers to look at current or historical flows in rivers. This seminar provides some background on different types of gauge stations, how they function, how they are established and maintained, as well as common issues related to interpreting gauge station data.
