This report is a summary document of the Morice and Lakes Districts Small Streams Temperature Project for the year 2002. The report describes the methods of data collection and descriptive statistical analyses of the data collected. The field program was designed to acquire data for an Adaptive Management study of sixteen stream reaches with various levels of riparian retention. A summary and preliminary analysis of new data are presented here. Also included is a summary of the experimental riparian buffer treatments to be applied at each of the sixteen study reaches. Preliminary analysis of the site thermographs suggests a distinct pattern of harvesting related temperature effects. Harvested reaches (both above and within the study reaches) display a pattern of increased daily temperature variation (diel flux) and increased average temperatures. Variations in thermal performance between the sites is discussed. Freshwater Resources.
