Land Use Effects on Stream Thermal Regime

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

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.

Water Science Careers: Fluvial Geomorphology

Spatio-Temporal Dynamics of Thermal Refugia in Streams: Consequences for Brook and Brown Trout Interactions

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

All species of trout are highly sensitive to stream temperature. Native brook trout at the most sensitive, needing colder temperatures than brown and other non-native species, making them most vulnerable…

Threats and Opportunities in the Conservation of Native Pelagic Spawning Fishes in Kansas

800 532 Stroud Water Research Center

This project documents how small dams have fragmented stream networks in the Central Great Plains region. Many fishes native to this region lay buoyant eggs that float downstream while developing.…
