*Note: Wind and Temperature measurements are taken manually by members of MRC. Flow is read at Maidenhead Bridge Environment Agency(EA) ultrasonic flow gauge. Please be aware that this data is unvalidated and the EA and MRC are not liable for any damage or injury caused by a member of any club or individual relying on this data.

The flow gauge has the cross-section of the river programmed in to it. It has a device to measure the river level, and to measure the flow it sends a pulse at an angle across the river which then returns to the gauge. In one direction the pulse is impeeded by the flow, in the other it is helped by it, therefore the difference is an accurate measurement of the flow in the river.
