Spatial and temporal variability in stream temperatures

PI: Wendy Monk
Institution: Canadian Rivers Institute, University of New Bruns
We aim to explore the impact of a changing climate on the stream temperatures of rivers across the natural range of Atlantic salmon in North America. Atlantic salmon exhibit specific temperature tolerances for each life cycle attribute. Stream temperatures have been modelled using different statistical techniques (e.g. deterministic, stochastic and regression) for long-term data series. Data has been collected for Atlantic salmon populations acros their natural range. Preliminary analysis has explored the relationship between historical Atlantic salmon populations and historical stream temperatures. The second component of the project aims to explore the impact of future climate change on these populations and to examine their spatial and temporal variability.
