The USFS method for using an underwater epoxy to permanently attach stream sensors to boulders.
This website provides resources to help those in the western U.S. organize temperature monitoring efforts, describes techniques for measuring stream temperatures, and describes several statistical models for predicting stream temperatures and thermally suitable fish habitats from temperature data. You will also find useful links to other stream temperature resources such as publications, videos, and presentations on topics relating to thermal regimes in streams.
The NorEaST web portal was developed to serve as a coordinated, multi-agency regional framework to map and store continuous stream temperature locations and data for New England, Mid Atlantic, and Great Lakes States. Stream temperature monitoring locations and metadata can be viewed for nearly 7900 monitoring locations across 22 states, contributed by 41 different organizations. The objectives of the project are to 1) Identify common data fields and structures that are state-of-the-art for maintaining water quality data. Using this information, the PIs will build a data template and framework to store incoming stream temperature data, build web services to output these standards, and format select datasets to demonstrate applications of these data, 2) Conduct user testing to engage agencies and other users/data stewards to refine the web portal for data access and management purposes, and 3) Develop and apply models for targeted applications of selected data to demonstrate the utility of large scale, consistent stream temperature data in decision making.
This web application tool is designed to facilitate decision-making by providing a system that seamlessly links data to models to model results. Users can upload data, run models, view results and use the results to inform decisions in one integrated system. SHEDS has been funded by the NE Climate Science Center, the North Atlantic Landscape Conservation Cooperative, USGS and DOI Hurricane Sandy Restoration funds, and the USGS National Climate Science Center.
