ok so perhaps i should further explain
ok so these canals have water boats that zip by and dock, causing boat wakes and thus undulations (and therefore turbulence). So lets imagine a still canal (kinda not normal but for example purposes let's run with it
) and a motor boat will come by. the wake produced by this boat cause large wave undulations. Now my advisor suggested we actually get a sensor that will measure these undulations. and by what i am seeing, its not gonna be that easy
. But i think a good idea would be to have some sort of sensor or device that can determine light bouncing off the waves generated. (and i know some of you mentioned that already thanks so much!)....the purpose of this project is to HIGHLIGHT the fact that boats cause undulations which in turn corrode canal walls. THis is highlighted by a bubble machine.
