Influence of climate change on stream temperatures across the northwest

A team of researchers from the University of Washington, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, US Geological Survey and US Department of Agriculture published new research showing how water temperatures vary in over 7,000 miles of rivers and streams across the Pacific Northwest and northern California. Using high-resolution remotely-sensed water temperature data, this research helps identify potential influences of climate change on the availability of cold water for species like salmon. EarthLab’s Climate Impacts Group Se-Yeun Lee is a collaborator on this project, which was funded by the North Pacific Landscape Conservation Cooperative.
