Summary

Water temperature and the availability of cold-water refugia are important parameters during summer baseflows when stream water temperatures are at their maximum. The U.S. Geological Survey measured near-streambed and surface water temperatures along the lower Quinault River, on the Olympic Peninsula, Washington between August 9-12, 2016, during summer baseflow conditions. The survey occurred downstream from Lake Quinault from approximately River Kilometer (RK) 4 to approximately RK 49 (45 kilometers total). Near-streambed temperatures and water depths were measured at 1-second intervals, which occur on average at an approximately 1-meter water surface distance interval. Near-streambed temperature and depth were measured using an internally-logging [...]
