Area Mill/Pardaloe Creeks
Topic Temperature: Min, Max, Avg of Pardaloe Creek - lower, 1999
Caption:  This Chart shows the daily minimum, maximum, and average water temperature in Celsius (C) at the mouth of Pardaloe Creek (site GRIMP5D) for the year 1999. Daily maximum and average water temperatures were mostly above the optimum range for juvenile salmonids during summer 2001, which would preclude the presence of coho and prove highly stressful for juvenile steelhead. The reference value of 10-15.6C optimum temperature range for juvenile salmonid rearing is based on McCullough (1999). Sullivan (2000) classified water temperatures over 26 C as lethal, while the maximum at this site attained 27.3 C. See InfoLinks for more information. Data were contributed by the California Department of Forestry's and Mendocino County RCD's Garcia River Instream Monitoring Project (Maahs and Barber, 2001).
