This study examines stream temperatures and associated air temperatures at multiple sites in stream networks within the Andrews Experimental Forest. Stream temperature sensors were placed at matched elevations in the main headwater streams of Lookout Creek, Mack Creek and McRae Creek as well as above and below major confluences in downstream reaches. Air temperatures were recorded 1.5 m above the stream at selected sites. Data were collected every half hour during late spring and summers. Some sites have data during fall and winter. Sensors were also placed in bottom of shallow piezometric wells in WS 3.
