How do I enter an AQUARIUS Stage-Discharge Curve in HOBOlink?


AQUARIUS provides powerful and easy-to-use tools for creating stage-discharge curves for your sites. Once you have a curve created for your site, you can enter points from that curve into a HOBOlink Stage-Discharge Table, that will be used to create a water flow data channel from incoming water level data. The resulting water flow data can be used be used for alarm notifications, shown in graphs or exported. HOBOlink allows entering up to 20 points in a stage-discharge table. HOBOlink uses linear lines between these points to calculate the discharge values between points entered. For the best accuracy, you will want to enter the most points for areas of the curve where the slope is changing the most.
