Topic Temperature: Floating Weekly Average, Arroyo Corte Madera Sites 2003
 
Caption:  This Chart shows the floating weekly average water temperature in Celsius (C) at four sites in the Arroyo Corte Madera del Presidio and Old Mill Creek for the year 2003. Temperatures were very good for juvenile steelhead growth, with maximum floating weekly average water temperatures (MWAT) exceeding 17.0C at only one site (Arroyo Corte Madera Creek below Warner Creek) and not exceeding 19.0C at any site. Based on a review of steelhead growth studies, Sullivan et al. (2000) found that compared to optimum temperatures, an MWAT of 17.0C reduced steelhead growth by 10%, and an MWAT of 19.0C reduced growth by 20%. See Info Links for more information. Temperature data comes from automated water temperature data probes placed in Arroyo Corte Madera del Presidio and Old Mill Creek by Kier Associates.
