Abstract: In September 1983, four new streamflow monitoring sites were established in a west Chestnut Ridge catchment at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Ultrasonic level/flow recorders were used to monitor the streamflow at these sites. By use of a FROM (functional read only memory), the recorder can operate in a linear or proportional mode. Data are recorded on an EPROM (erasable programmable read only memory) which can later be translated using an Apple IIe microcomputer with an interface card. New computer software was developed for the Apple IIe to meet the specific need of streamflow reporting.
