Abstract : A study was conducted to determine the relative merits of various flowmeters and techniques used in shallow-water oceanography. Although problems still exist with the use of electromagnetic flowmeters, it was concluded that these represent the best medium for measuring steady-state currents at depths where the magnitude of orbital velocities caused by surface waves can be several times larger than steady-state flows.
