Document title

Fluid speed variability and the importance to managing fish habitat in rivers

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



An evaluation of fluid speed profiles is presented using field data collected from spawning streams in Ontario, Canada. The data have been subjected to an interpolation algorithm, minimum curvature, to deliver a more accurate view of fluid speed patterns. The results show that fluid speed patterns vary completely within the same cross-section under different flow regimes, even when the mean depth and mean speed of the flow are virtually unchanged, and that mean speed depiction of flow is inaccurate when considering particle transport/deposition. The minimum curvature technique of data interpolation is shown to be an accurate method for visualizing fluid speed patterns
