Land Use Effects on Stream Thermal Regime

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

Stream temperatures are dramatically affected by land use in the watershed and riparian zone. In this project, we measure stream temperatures throughout a series of small watersheds with land use ranging from very urbanized to completely forested to develop a predictive model of stream temperature changes.

Funded by: USDA Forest Service

Principal Investigators: Melinda D. Daniels and Valérie Ouellet

Project Years: 2015, 2016, 2017
