Title: Temperature regimes of small streams along the Mendocino coast

Publication Series: Miscellaneous Publication
Description: Stream temperature measurements have been collected in the Caspar Creek drainage on Jackson Demonstration State Forest periodically over the past 25 years. Review of this data and other recently collected data from western Mendocino County illustrates much about the temperature regimes of small coastal drainages, and how they are impacted by timber harvesting. This article gives a synopsis of these studies and summarizes reasons for concern. Additionally, it presents a model currently in use by the U.S. Forest Service to predict changes in maximum summer temperatures resulting from canopy reductions.
