Yangtze River Sediment Data

LISST-SL2 Is Demonstrated in Yangtze River, Wuhan, China [This article shows an example of river data from a boat; for bridge-lowered data, click here.] The Yangtze River hydrological facility is located in Wuhan on the western bank. A map of the location can be found here (30°37’41.59″...

Data Products of LISST-SL2

Real Time Displays, and Immediate Averaged Results The new LISST-SL2 river sediment monitoring instrument is a greatly simplified and powerful device. The instrument transmits data immediately upon being lowered into water. Data can be viewed in real time, or after processing for averages. Click here...

Working Limits of Particle Concentrations

This article is corrected and simplified,17 Sept. 2018 In Brief:  The recommended upper limit of concentrations for LISST instruments is:                                       Cmax = 375D/P micro-L/L where D is mean grain size in microns, and P is laser path-length in mm. Similarly,...

Rich Details of a River Column Revealed by LISST-SL

These data show use of LISST-SL and -SL2 from bridges. For use from boats, click here. UPDATED 18 SEPT 2017 The LISST-SL2 instrument delivers the most powerful suite of sediment data. It is an isokinetic instrument (isokinetic means intake velocity matches river velocity). The parameters it measures...

LISST-ABS River Profiles by USGS

UPDATED 09 SEPTEMBER 2017 As described in related articles, the LISST-ABS has a near-constant sensitivity (Volts/concentration) for sediment particles in the >30 micron size range [see Features section here]. In contrast, the sensitivity of optical turbidity degrades with increasing grain size. This...

Measuring Particle Size Distribution of Cement

Laser Diffraction Analysis of NIST 114q Cement per AASHTO Standard T353-14   Laser diffraction analysis of cements is a common industry practice to control quality of cements. Typically, companies must invest in multiple instruments at as many stations. The LISST-Portable|XR is truly portable –...
