Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler Standards

The Acoustic Doppler Current Profiler (ADCP) standards were developed by the Queensland Department of Environment and Resource Management with funding from the Bureau of Meteorology.

The development to date is the product of a broad and inclusive consultation process and offers the template for a way forward in developing national standards for water information. The Bureau extends its thanks to all concerned and particularly Mark Randall who in a time of extensive flooding in Queensland managed to maintain the momentum on this project and deliver such a great outcome.

The Standards Business Forum will progress the adoption of this standard across Australia.
