On October 19th, Dr. Kalyanapu took his GIS and Hydrology Classes to Obion River to perform stream flow measurements and channel survey. Students used USGS top-set wading rods for measuring flow velocities (and will calculate flow using velocity-area method) and performed Total Station and Sonar Survey on the South Fork Obion River.

They also visited the West Tennessee River Basin Authority (WTRBA) in Humboldt, TN,...

As a part of TTU's Team URECA Grant, Drs. V and K visited Columbia, South Carolina along with project team, Ms. Kalie Poston, Ms. Emily Reed, and Mr. Lucas Munasque. The project mainly focuses on understanding how the floods happened, and the response and recovery process. Students are collecting all the available technical data, media coverage and compiling public response information. This will be used to assess...

 As part of a semester project, students in the Open Channel Hydraulics (CEE 6520) class have installed flow sensor in Falling Water River.

The overall goal of the project is to establish stage-discharge rating curves for the River near Cookeville, to be used in future hydrologic modeling studies.
