Stream temperature observations for 1950-2006 and projections

This page serves stream temperature observations and projections that were generated as part of the Washington Climate Change Impacts Assessment that was funded by the Washington State Legislature through House Bill 1303. The contact people for this data and projections are Nate Mantua (mantua@atmos.washington.edu) and Ingrid Tohver (itohver@washington.edu). A sample of the observations is the University Bridge weekly water temperature (shown below).
