Surfacewater - daily surface water discharges in catchment at Cabauw

Discharge has been measured at three locations. At these locations, measurement weirs have been installed in May 2007 to estimate discharges accurately. A V-notch weir is used to measure the inflow of surface water into the catchment near the Wielse Kade (Qin). Trapezoidal Rossum weirs have been installed to measure outflow (Qout1 and Qout2), of which the stage-discharge relations have been obtained by laboratory calibration. The uncertainty associated with the discharge measurement can be considerable in some cases.
