Area Sonoma Creek
Topic Temperature: Min, Max, Avg at Sonoma Creek Lower, 2002
Caption:  This Chart shows the daily minimum, maximum, and average water temperature in Celsius (C) at lower Sonoma Creek at lower Kiser property (site 5) for the year 2002. Water temperatures were almost entirely above the optimum range for juvenile salmonids from May through mid-August, when the stream went dry at the monitoring site for the first time since temperature monitoring began in 1999. The reference value of 10-15.6C optimum temperature range for juvenile salmonid rearing is based on McCullough (1999). See Info Links for more information. Temperature data come from automated water temperature data probes placed in Sonoma Creek and its tributaries by the Sonoma Ecology Center (SEC).
