Subject: Release of WinRiver Software Version 10.05 for Computing Streamflow from Acoustic Profiler Data
The purpose of this memorandum is to announce the availability of WinRiver 10.05 for collecting and processing data collected with RD Instruments (RDI) acoustic profilers (Broadband, Rio Grande, Workhorse, and others). The WinRiver software was developed by RDI, in cooperation with the USGS, as a part of a Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA). The use of WinRiver software by USGS offices was announced in Office of Surface Water Technical Memorandums No. 2000.03 and 2002.03.
RDI released version 10.04 of WinRiver to the public in late January 2003. However, while this release memo was in review some minor infrequently occurring bugs were identified. Therefore, a new version of WinRiver, version 10.05, is now being released.
RDI has continued to update and improve the WinRiver software. Various new features are included in WinRiver 10.05 and known problems have been fixed since the release of WinRiver 10.03. Attachment A contains detailed information about major enhancements in WinRiver 10.05, including
