Abstract: The abstract gives an overview of the current practice and purpose of calibration of current meters in Austria. The calibration laboratory of the Institute for Hydraulic Engineering and Calibration of Hydrometrical Current-Meters in Vienna, which has the only calibration facility for current meters in Austria, and the applied calibration procedure is presented. The abstract is mainly aimed at operators of other calibration laboratories, which may be interested in comparing details in working procedure, but also at users of current meters and people interested in hydrography.
