Summary

This dataset includes georeferenced high-resolution, airborne thermal infrared (TIR) imagery, a polyline shapefile of the channel centerline, and a tabular file with longitudinal stream temperature profiles for Hat Creek, California. The two aerial TIR surveys were conducted with a helicopter by NV5 Geospatial (formerly Quantum Spatial, Inc.) and are published as two raster mosaics in GeoTiff format with a resolution of 0.5 m. The TIR mosaics and longitudinal stream temperature profiles contain corrected surface temperatures in degrees C (multiplied by 10 to create an unsigned integer pixel type). The TIR dataset encompasses a 64.6-km reach of Hat Creek that extends from 50 m upstream of the confluence with Lost Creek to 50 m downstream [...]

Purpose

This data release contains raster mosaics of radiant temperatures of the water surface and vector point shapefiles of longitudinal stream temperature profiles created as part of a U.S. Geological Survey study to assess spatial patterns of groundwater discharge. The intended uses of these data include, but are not limited to, assessments of thermal heterogeneity, sources of cold-water discharge, and geologic controls on surface-water and groundwater interactions within the Hat Creek basin. Hat Creek is a tributary to the Pit River located in northeastern California. Discharge from cold-water springs contributes ~10% of the average annual flow to the Pit River, which flows into Shasta Reservoir and represents an integral component of the Central Valley Project and California’s surface-water supply. The Hat Creek study is part of a larger regional groundwater study for the Northwest Volcanic Aquifer Study Area (NVASA) funded by the USGS Water Availability and Use Study Program (WAUSP) https://www.usgs.gov/centers/or-water/science/hydrogeologic-and-geothermal-conditions-northwest-volcanic-aquifers?qt-science_center_objects=0#qt-science_center_objects.
