MEASERR - A Program for Determination of Error in Individual Discharge Measurements
Entry ID: USGS_MEASERR

[ Get Service ]
[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The uncertainty, or standard error, for individual measurements of
stream discharge is computed based on a root-mean-square error
analysis of the individual component errors. The component errors
include errors in the measurement of width, depth, and velocity, and
in computation procedures. The error in measurement of velocity
include the uncertainties ... View entire text

DATA ANALYSIS AND VISUALIZATION >STATISTICAL APPLICATIONS Parameter Definition

Use Constraints MEASERR is written in Fortran 77 with the following extensions: use
of integer*2 declarations and use of adjustable size concatenation
of strings. MEASERR uses ANSI escape sequence to position text on
the screen and thus requires terminal emulation that supports these
escape sequences (for example, VT100 on UNIX-based systems and
ANSY.SYS loaded for DOS-based systems). Generally, the program is
easily installed on most computer systems. The code has been used
on UNIX-based computers and DOS-based 386 or greater computers
having a math coprocessor and 1 mb of memory.
