Summary

Longitudinal profiles of near-streambed water temperature were measured at ambient river velocity using the method of Vacarro and Maloy (2006) within nine reaches of the Yakima River between Sunnyside Diversion Dam near Parker, WA and the confluence of the Yakima River with the Columbia River near Richland, WA. In eight reaches, near-streambed water temperature was measured along three profiles on the right, center, and left sides of the channel; in the other reach, water temperature was measured along two profiles on the right and left sides of the channel. Temperature and location data was collected and processed in accordance with Washington State Department of Ecology Quality Assurance Project Plan (QAPP) No. 18-12-009 (Appel, [...]
