Abstract: This paper presents a 100-point scoring system for quality assessment of moving-boat ADCP streamflow measurements. The proposed scoring system utilizes results from descriptive statistics and uncertainty analysis on a measurement; it employs a newly developed median-unbiased uncertainty estimator as a major quality indicator; it also considers four other quality indicators. The rating scale in the proposed 100-point scoring system is designed to be an analogy to the well-known 100-point wine rating scale. The score point calculators for the five quality indicators are presented. The score for a measurement is the sum of all points assigned to the five quality indicators. Results for moving-boat ADCP streamflow measurements on five rivers are presented as application examples. The proposed scoring system provides a quantitative measure of the overall quality of moving-boat ADCP streamflow measurements.
