Software
Used in the Analysis of
ADCP and UVM Data
( references |ORE UVM errors |data structures |Discharge main page )

Data from an RDI ADCP is acquired using their PC-based program TRANSECT. This same program can be used to calculate the discharge for each transect, including corrections for top, bottom and end loss. However, in order to be able to study the ADCP velocity distributions in detail, we have written routines in MatLab (and IDL) to unpack and analyze the RDI data files.
