Description: Adjacent headwater streams were monitored for postfire shade, summer streamflow and maximum water temperature following the 40,000 ha Silver Complex fire in southern Oregon. Average postfire shade (30 percent) for the three streams was considerably less than prefire shade (est.>90 percent). Dramatic increases in direct solar radiation resulted in large but variable increase in maximum water temperature. Increase was greatest in Stream C where temperature increased 10.0°C. Stream B increased 6.2°C. Stream A increased 3.3°C.
