Accuracy of radar water level measurements
Radar water-level sensors are generating a lot of interest among hydrographers because of their ease of installation and low maintenance. However, limited information is available on the accuracy and performance of radar sensors in the field. This paper presents test results from recent field measurements made with radar water-level sensors. Field data collected with two pulse radars, (Design Analysis Associates H-3611 and the Ohmart Vega Puls 62) and one continuous wave frequency modulated radar (Saab Rosemount) during lake drawdown at Horse Mesa Dam, Arizona, are presented and compared against ...
