Abstract : The collection of current data in the Mekong Delta poses many difficult problems, primarily due to war conditions and large water level fluctuations. These factors limit normal current measurement techniques in most areas. This report briefly discusses initial concepts concerning an underway system for measuring current magnitudes that utilizes a ducted current meter and various positioning devices. (Author)
