Evaluating Water Quantity and Water Quality Issues in Illinois Streams using Large-Scale Particle Image Velocimetry (LSPIV)

Institute: Illinois
Year Established: 2016 Start Date: 2016-03-01 End Date: 2017-02-28
Total Federal Funds: $9,915 Total Non-Federal Funds: $19,829

Principal Investigators: Bruce Rhoads

Abstract: The proposed research will result in two main outcomes: 1) an improved capability to determine discharge from large-scale particle image velocimetry (LSPIV) and an assessment of the advantages and limitations of LSPIV compared to hydroacoustic instruments, and 2) a better understanding of how complex surface flow structure is related to mixing processes which impact water quality at local and network scales.
