Area Mill/Pardaloe Creeks
Topic Temperature: FWA, Pardaloe Creek sites, 1997
Caption:  The above chart plots floating weekly average (FWA) temperature at Pardaloe Creek sites for the year 1997. Pardaloe Creek's FWA warms 2.0 - 5.5C between the upper site and the mouth. Maximum floating weekly average temperature (MWAT) exceeded 19.0C at both sites measured. 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 InfoLinks for more information.
