This collection accommodates the videos from a three-day theoretical and technical workshop hosted by the Energy & Environment Institute and international partners, addressing non-contact surface velocity methods for the determination of river and floodplain flows.
Topics covered during the three-day workshop series include:
• Camera based methods • Radar methods • Acoustic methods • Thermal imaging • Drone based methods • Velocimetry using satellite imagery and earth observation • In-channel and floodplain hydrodynamics • Software tools and data processing • Site considerations and site selection • Practicalities and legalities of drone flying • Uncertainty and verification in results • Innovation to improve results and overcome practical limitations
Over 400 global experts and experienced practitioners attended the workshop sessions to to share their knowledge through presentations, training and discussions. The final day focused on innovation, and overcoming limitations with these methods. It is hoped that the workshop will become an annual event.
