Turbidity sensor comparison study
Article title: Measurement differences between turbidity instruments, and their implications for suspended sediment concentration and load calculations: A sensor inter-comparison study.
- Five-fold differences in measured turbidity were observed across different sensors;
- Variations were found not to be dependent on the measuring principle being used;
- Different sensors with turbidity-SSC ratings give comparable sediment load estimates;
- Using turbidity as a proxy for SSC has implications for environmental monitoring.
