Aquatic Informatics Announces a New Release of the World's Best Rating Development Software with AQUARIUS Time-Series 3.6

AQUARIUS Time-Series now supports blending, in addition to shifting, of rating curves to derive and track the flow of water as channel conditions change.

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/23/14 -- Aquatic Informatics Inc., a global leader in providing innovative software for hydrologic data management and analysis, announced today the release of AQUARIUS Time-Series 3.6. The leading software for water data management now supports blended rating curves for environmental monitoring agencies that prefer to prorate rather than shift their rating models.

"Critical to human survival, surface water found in lakes and rivers accounts for less than 0.01% of all the earth's water. AQUARIUS Time-Series software is preferred by over 400 organizations to derive and track the quantity and flow of surface water," said Ed Quilty, President and CEO of Aquatic Informatics. "The Rating Development toolbox is the world's most powerful tool for building and maintaining reliable river stage versus discharge curves."

Field measurements, cross-sectional survey data, and dynamic river conditions (such as backwater, scour, fill, ice, and weeds) all have to be taken into account when calculating discharge. The accuracy of computed discharge data is directly dependent on rating curves. AQUARIUS Time-Series centralizes all the information and tools required to develop the best rating curves, giving water resource managers the highest confidence in their calculations of flow.

"When changing stream conditions affect the flow of water, rating curves must be adjusted. AQUARIUS Time-Series 3.6 can now be used to blend rating curves, one into the next, to account for changing conditions," said Eric Dorgelo, Chief Technology Officer at Aquatic Informatics. "This adds to the existing support for complex curve shifting. A single rating model contains the ratings, shifts, blends, and periods of applicability that describe a channel over time. The new blending feature further entrenches AQUARIUS Time-Series as the world's best rating development software."

The science of developing rating curves to measure the flow of water has been fine-tuned over the last 100 plus years of dedicated work by the world's leading hydrometric agencies. The AQUARIUS Time-Series Rating Development tool is engineered to support the latest global standards set by the US Geological Survey (USGS), the International Organization for Standards (ISO), the World Meteorological Organization (WMO), and the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC). It is used by national agencies, like the USGS and New Zealand National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research, to efficiently develop and maintain accurate and legally defensible ratings in less time.

AQUARIUS Time-Series customers can take immediate advantage of the latest enhancements by downloading Version 3.6 from the AQUARIUS 360 Support Portal. Water resource professionals interested in learning more about AQUARIUS Time-Series are invited to contact [email protected] for a demonstration with their own data.
