HiWATER: Dataset of measurements on channel flow in the midstream of the Heihe River Basin

HiWATER: Dataset of measurements on channel flow in the midstream of the Heihe River Basin


The dataset includes channel flow measured at the second irrigation stage in spring (22 May, 2012), the third irrigation stage in spring (18 June, 2012) and the first irrigation stage in autumn (16 July, 2012). The time used in this dataset is in UTC+8 Time.

1.1 Objective of measurement

Objective of measuring channel flow are to provide the conference data for irrigation water optimal allocation model according to obtain reality water volume measured at Dou channel and Mao channel. Data set also is used to reference data for other observations such as eddy, biophysical parameters.

1.2 Observation measures and principle

Measures: flow meter named Flowatch, which is made in Switzerland, observation precision: 0.1m/s; and rule, observation of which is 1cm.

Principle: Flowatch, which is mechanical-based, is used to compute the velocity of the fluid according to vanes speed. The flow of channels is computed by using observed flow velocity and channel sectional area calculated on the basis of channel engineer sectional parameters and water level.

Observed items: average flow velocity of channel (m/s), water level of channel (m), water temperature (℃), engineer sectional parameters of channel (investigation). Average flow velocity and water level of channel are measured one time per hour when channel flow is stable. However, the two items are measured two times or more times when channel flow is unstable.

1.4 Data process

Observed data is saved in excel sheet, types of which include channel flow velocity, channel sectional area, water level, and water temperature. Channel flow and irrigation water volume are calculated by using observed data according to data per-process approach.
