||North Fork Big River
||Temperature: Floating Weekly Average, North Fork Big River, 1991-01
||Caption: The maximum floating weekly average water temperature, or MWAT, in the North Fork Big River sub-basin at site 75-1 exceeded the fully suitable range each year from 1991 to 2001 and is, therefore, unsuitable for coho salmon. The 60 degree F (15.6 C) stress threshold for coho salmon was chosen as a threshold for the North Coast Watershed Assessment Program based on literature review. Floating weekly average water temperatures mask transient peaks and the 50-60 F reference from NCWAP would be more appropriately applied to maximum daily readings.
