ABSTRACT
Reports on the design, construction, calibration and installation in a small shallow lake for the detection and measurement of water movement at low velocities in natural environments. Use of sets of typical strain gauges in a full-bridge configuration; Focus on the first directly measured slow flow directionality of shallow water movement in the three coordinate system.
