Report from S&T Project 20070: Utilizing Acoustic Sensors to Detect Streambed Mobilization

The Wild and Scenic Rio Chama has a large supply of fine sediment that smothers the gravel streambed. Flushing flows are needed to mobilize fine sediment to support brown trout habitat and food source. This project scoped the use of acoustic sensors for detecting when streambed mobilization occurs. Using acoustic sensor data, the moment of mobilization can be correlated to a flow rate.
