Opportunity Type:

This project will capitalize on high resolution stream temperature data to explore physical controls on stream temperatures and energy budgets with implications for ecological responses and societal impacts. The participant will combine first-principle energy budgets with analysis of temperature records that considers covariates describing geomorpholgic, climatic, and vegetative attributes of streams and watersheds over a wide geographic area in the Pacific Northwest. This analysis will be used to test first-order hypothesis on landscape factors controlling stream thermal regimes and their sensitivity to disturbances and climate change.

This project is closely associated with the Andrews Forest LTER.
