Various methods, processing steps and project metadata are listed below. Although the procedures here do not provide step-by-step instructions for Stream Temperature Modeling and Monitoring, this content may be useful for understanding the more complex methods employed in the project. Please see the study overview for a brief explanation of the project.
Note that these procedures use a synthetic stream network generated from a software package called TauDEM. To implement a stream temperature model using readily available NHDPlus stream lines, please see the Multiple Regression Stream Temperature Model web site.
