Developing a Stream Temperature Forecast Web Site

Eric Danner (SWFSC Fisheries Ecology Division) demonstrated the preliminary web interface for the NASA/NOAA project “Improving Stream Temperature Predictions for River Water Decision Support Systems” to the NASA program manager Woody Turner.

The web site was developed and hosted by Lynn Dewitt (SWFSC Environmental Research Division) and allows for the visualization of spatially explicit modeled stream temperatures on the upper Sacramento River. The eventual end-users (state and federal fisheries and water managers) will be able to view stream temperature forecasts and generate various water management scenarios to dynamically manage the habitat of ESA listed salmon species.
