  1. 1. A Novel Signal Model and Estimation Method for Acoustic Doppler Current Meters

    Author : Thomas L Lagö; Teknisk akustik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Doppler Profiler; Acoustic Doppler; Gaussian Backscattering Model; ADCM; ADCP; The Symmiktos Method; Estimation; Doppler; Current; MPCA.; Technological sciences; Teknik; Electromagnetism; optics; acoustics; Elektromagnetism; optik; akustik;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the process of estimating underwater current from the backscattering signal transmitted from an ultrasonic transducer. The narrowband sinusoidal burst signal is Doppler-shifted due to the current, and this information is converted into current. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modeling rating curves from close-range remote sensing data : Application of laser and acoustic ranging instruments for capturing stream channel topography

    Author : Norris Lam; Steve W. Lyon; Jason W. Kean; Ida Westerberg; Helle Skånes; James Brasington; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; laser scanning; acoustic Doppler current profiler; hydraulic modeling; rating curves; Sweden; naturgeografi; Physical Geography;

    Abstract : A rating curve provides a functional relationship between water height (i.e. stage) and discharge at a specified cross-section in a river. Used in combination with a time series of stage, rating curves become one of the central components for generating continuous records of streamflow. READ MORE

  3. 3. Resource characterization and variability studies for marine current power

    Author : Nicole Carpman; Karin Thomas; Mats Leijon; Sandra Eriksson; AbuBakr S. Bahaj; Uppsala universitet; []

    Abstract : Producing electricity from marine renewable resources is a research area that develops continuously. The field of tidal energy is on the edge to progress from the prototype stage to the commercial stage. READ MORE

  4. 4. Simulations and measurements of free surface flow in regulated rivers

    Author : Anders G. Andersson; Luleå tekniska universitet; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Strömningslära; Fluid Mechanics;

    Abstract : Open channel flow near hydropower stations is of interest for both engineering and environmental applications. In this research project Computational Fluid Dynamics simulations of free surface flow in regulated rivers were applied with both fish migration and validation of numerical simulations in focus.

  5. 5. Retrieval of ocean surface winds and currents using satellite synthetic aperture radar and infrared radiometry

    Author : Gisela Carvajal; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; surface currents; infrared radiometry; synthetic aperture radar; surface winds; maximum cross correlation; wind direction;

    Abstract : This thesis focuses on the development, analysis and evaluation of methods for the retrieval of ocean surface winds with synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and surface currents with infrared (IR) radiometer sensors. The SAR wind speed retrievals are based on geophysical model functions using wind directions obtained with two approaches. READ MORE
