ABSTRACT:

Stream temperature at stream gages and air temperature above the stream are measured at all stream gaging sites and at selected major stream confluences. Current temperature data are collected as hourly averages of instantaneous measurements. these data began ~1996. Historic data, starting in 1950 at Lookout Creek gage, are included at daily mean or maximum and minimum.

Other Andrews Forest related databases: Long term air temperature data from the reference and benchmark climate stations are also available in MS001. Previous high resolution stream temperature data at some of the small watershed stream gages are available in HT001 and stream temperature data throughout the Andrews Forest stream networks during several years are available in HT002.
