Two important factors are presently driving new developments in the practice of hydraulic research and experimentation: an explosion of new instrumentation technologies, particularly in the fields of acoustics and particle-image tracking; and an expansion of the international collaboration due to the efforts of professional societies and the ease of information exchange created by the Internet and related technologies. In this environment, experts from more than 20 countries convened at the 2002 Hydraulic Measurements and Experimental Methods Conference held in Estes Park, Colorado to discuss established and developing technologies in the field, and to exchange information about new methods and applications that are redefining the state of the art. The conference was co-sponsored by the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE (EWRI) and the International Association of Hydraulic Engineering and Research (IAHR). The 119 technical papers in this proceedings cover such topics as: Analysis Techniques for ADCP Data; Applications of ADVs to Sediment Measurements; Measurements in Air-Water Mixtures; Open Channel Flows; Hydraulic Structures and Instrumentation; ADCP Discharge Measurement Applications; ADVs in Field an Laboratory Applications; Innovations in River Discharge Measurement; Laboratory Applications of Doppler Profiling Technology; Developments in Current Metering; New Methodologies in Quantitative Imaging; Measuring Sediment Transport Parameters Using Acoustic Profilers; Field and Lab Methods for Sediment Measurements; Three-Dimensional Quantitative Imaging Techniques; Measuring Tidally Affected Flows using Acoustic Methods; and Measuring Turbulence Characteristics with ADCPs. It also covers: Measurements in Lakes and Reservoirs; Quantitative Imaging Techniques Applied to 2-Phase Flows; Field and Lab Methods for Surface Velocity Measurement; Turbulence Measurement with ADVs; Index Velocity Applications; Quantitative Imaging Techniques for Bed Load and Bed Form Flows; Discharge Measurements Using ADVs; Acoustic Measurement Applications; Micromodels; Turbulence Measurements; and Innovations in Flow Measurements.
