This chart shows the maximum daily water temperatures during summer of 1997 of the Little North Fork above and below Specimen Creek. The USFS maintained the Hobotemp located in Specimen Creek. Notice that the water temperature of Little North Fork above Specimen Creek was nearly the same as the temperature below, suggesting that Specimen Creek had little influence on the temperature of the Little North Fork, either because of its water temperature or because of its volume. Data were collected by automated temperature sensors called Hobotemps, which were anchored in flowing water in the shade. Hobotemps were monitored by community volunteers and paid staff of the Salmon River Restoration Council. This chart was derived from Chart Table SpecMx97.dbf, which was filtered from Source Table Spec97.dbf.
