Spatial Statistical Stream Temperature Model

This Stream Temperature Modeling and Monitoring approach uses thermograph data and predictor variables obtained from climatologic stations, remotely sensed riparian vegetation, and DEMs.  Spatial statistical models that account for network topology are used to predict stream temperature attributes with good success (R2 ~ 0.90).
