Abstract : An approach was developed to quantify the response and predict the measurement uncertainties of current meters in a shallow water environment. A three-phase program of (1) laboratory evaluation, (2) a field experiment and (3) an error prediction model was developed. These program phases are discussed along with preliminary results.
