    Dear Kevin,

    thanks a lot for your answer. I was aware of usage of QRev in the USGS, but it is interesting to hear that not all agencies might follow that example.

    It is the same in Germany, but based on a different standard:  Which brings me to my point (of asking this simple question): Q-determination, despite ISO standards, is still depending on the software you use/prefer and – at least in Germany – we see that this can lead to systematic differences in the order of 3-5% in the measurements.
