Predicting basin-wide stream temperatures

Thermometers become a thing of the past with Stillwater’s BasinTemp© stream temperature model. The BasinTemp© model predicts stream temperatures for entire watersheds while only requiring a minimum of input data and results provided within a GIS framework.  Rafael Real de Asua, Stillwater’s Senior GIS Analyst, will be presenting an application of BasinTemp© on the South Fork of Ten Mile Creek, North Coast, California as part of the “Coast Redwood Forests in a Changing California: A Symposium for Scientists and Managers” to be held in Santa Cruz later this week. Raf’s presentation, to be given on Thursday, June 23 as part of Concurrent Session 4A, will provide an overview of the model as well as describe the implications for land management by Campbell Timber in the South Fork Ten Mile Creek Basin. Contributing authors Ethan Bell and Bruce Orr will also be attending the symposium.
