Eulerian current measurement

The measurement of current by an instrument fixed in space, for example, a moored current meter or a bottom-mounted acoustic Doppler current profiler.

The Eulerian current is computed by averaging the measured fluid velocity over a suitable interval (usually a few minutes).
