    notice: if this value is not prescribed by the user the default value 9999 will be used.
  4. (optional) determination of free surface position: the user can choose between different methods to select an appropriate method to determine the position of the free surface; the position of the free surface may be either determined from the change of sign of the quantity BIN-DEPTH or derived from percentage good PCG-4BEAMS;
    notice: if no method is prescribed, the internal standard method BIN-DEPTH will be used.
  5. name and type of result files:
    1. grid with measurement positions;
    2. name of BDF data file for storage of the two-dimensional depth-averaged measured data (free surface, depth averaged current velocity, etc.);
    3. (optional) name of BDF data file for storage of the three-dimensional measured data (current velocity, etc.).
