## Abstract

When designing a measuring network several questions must be answered. Basic properties like defining sampling interval and the exact locations for measuring sites are mostly based upon expert's judgement. In this paper a design method for measuring networks aiming at obtaining information for model calibration is proposed. This method is based upon the application of a hydrodynamic model for initial design. Based on a min-max approach for the sampling frequency, a first estimate is obtained. Based on a mathematical analysis of the model parameterization and information content of potential measuring locations it is possible to judge measuring networks objectively. Moreover, by applying some optimization technique (e.g. a genetic algorithm) an automated optimization of the measuring network is possible.
