Aim of the field trip

To measure and better understand fluvial processes


Water, sediments

Field methods

Measurement of:

  • Flow velocity (hydrometric current meter, Zählgerät OTT Z400)
  • Channel width (laser rangefinder, TruPulse 360)
  • Channel depth (metallic rode from the hydrometric current meter)
  • Sediment size (ruler)
  • Channel slope (google earth)


Field trip at the Isar river (Voderriss, Alps) is part of P3 Earth Surface Processes course
