Stream temperature modeling and monitoring

Documents and Media Posted on: January 23, 2015
Thermal regimes are important to aquatic ecosystems because they strongly dictate species distributions, productivity, and abundance. Inexpensive digital temperature loggers (thermographs, such as the TidbiT data logger), geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing technologies, and new spatial analyses are facilitating the development of temperature models and monitoring networks applicable at broad spatial scales.Document Type: Briefing Papers

NorWeST: a regional stream temperature database and modeled climate scenarios

Documents and Media Posted on: January 23, 2015
Climate change is warming aquatic ecosystems and will have profound consequences. Effective conservation of aquatic resources will require unprecedented levels of interagency coordination.  In addition, it will require the development of datasets and models for accurate downscaling of climate change effects to important habitat parameters and species distributions at local scales.Document Type: Briefing Papers

Climate change and wildfires: effects on stream temperatures and thermal habitat

Documents and Media Posted on: December 04, 2014
Temperature has an important influence on the distribution and abundance of stream organisms. A warming climate is expected to increase stream temperatures, but documentation of such increases is rare and usually limited to trend monitoring at only a few sites.Document Type: Briefing Papers
