Some practical and theoretical concepts related to the use of an acoustic Doppler current profiler (ADCP) in a small river are examined. The importance of understating the limitations of the measurement equipment and a system for locating the exact position of the ADCP are discussed. Details of a new measurement protocol which is suitable for small rivers are presented. Small samples of data measured in the River Blackwater are used to illustrate the concepts outlined in the paper. It is concluded that ADCPs can be successfully used in small rivers provided sufficient care is taken over their deployment and subsequent data analysis. However, in some cases it is acknowledged that additional modifications to the ADCP may need to be undertaken as illustrated in the paper.
