Winter Ecology in the Delta - Hydrology and ...
In this study, field sampling was conducted in February and March 2014. River discharges were measured at Sites 1-4 with an Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler, both at the beginning and end of the survey, to characterize the distribution and changes within the winter flows across each divergence area. Other discharge data were collected towards the mouth of each tributary. A further 40 bathymetry cross-sections, ten each in the four main distributaries, were sampled to characterize bed and hydraulic variability between the divergence sites and Lake Athabasca. All data were georeferenced using a Real Time Kinematic differential GPS unit, with survey control locations established using the Precise Point Positioning method.
