USGS Hydroacoustic Forums

The Hydroacoustics Forum is maintained by the USGS, OSW for sharing information regarding the application of acoustics to the measurement of streamflow, water velocity, and other hydraulic parameters. The forum is a USGS resource to educate, learn, and facilitate the exchange of information about applications involving a variety of hydroacoustic instruments including acoustic Doppler current profilers (ADCPs), side-looking acoustic profilers, acoustic velocity meters (AVMs), and acoustic Doppler velocimeters (ADVs). The forums are also used by the USGS to disseminate important information regarding quality assurance practices, training, and other matters.

Registration is required to access the forum. Detailed instructions on registering can be found at

Acoustics Mailing List

The USGS used to maintain a mailing list for the purposes of sharing information on hydroacoustic instruments and methods. The mailing list was discontinued in May 2014.
