Development and evaluation of a stream temperature component within the PRMS watershed modeling program
Stream temperature is becoming a very important factor in water quality and the health of many aquatic ecosystems. Computer modeling software can help predict the response of watershed and stream systems to changes in climate or other conditions. This thesis project concerns the development of a new module for the deterministic prediction of stream temperature within the United States Geological Survey's (USGS) Precipitation-Runoff Modeling System (PRMS) watershed surface hydrology model. This module is based on the solution found in the United States Fish and Wildlife Service Stream Network ...
