Design and installation of a novel automatic erosion monitoring system

Auteur :
LAWLER, D. M.

Description :
Process inference in geomorphology is hindered by a lack of information on the true temporal distribution of contemporary erosional and depositional activity. To tackle this problem a low-cost, automatic monitoring system based on the photo-electronic erosion pin (PEEP) sensor has been developed. Measurement principles, electronic and physical design, calibration, field installation, problems and prospects and pilot results from a river bank erosion site are discussed.
