Extended Learning Session: Distributed Temperature Sensing (DTS) for Investigating Water Movement and Emergence Locations

Tuesday, April 26, 2016: 4:00 p.m.-5:30 p.m.
Platte River Room (The Westin Denver Downtown)
By accurately and continuously measuring temperatures at thousands of sediment locations, DTS allows locating and studying seeps into water bodies.  Advantages include high spatial resolution, broad coverage, detection of changes through time (e.g., with tides or pumping), and high sensitivity.  I will show sample applications, discuss what sites are and are not suited to DTS, practical challenges and limitations, and recent advances.
