STREAM-TEMPERATURE CHARACTERISTICS IN GEORGIA By T.R. Dyar and S.J. Alhadeff _____ U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY Water-Resources Investigations Report Prepared in cooperation with GEORGIA DEPARTMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION DIVISION Atlanta, Georgia T o determine the relations among stream temperature and characteristics of individual stream reaches, an intensive analysis was conducted f or six reaches of Caribou Creek from July 10 through.

Methods of estimating "Stream Temperature Characteristics in Georgia" (Dyar and Alhadeff, ) were expanded to include calculations of daily (hourly) variations from selected index stations located nearby and transferring those variations as estimates to unmeasured sites. Year Published: Thermal infrared remote sensing of water temperature in riverine landscapes: Chapter 5.

Water temperature in riverine landscapes is an important regional indicator of water quality that is influenced by both ground- and surface-water inputs, and indirectly by land use in the surrounding watershed (Brown and Krygier, ; Beschta et al., ; Chen et al., ; Poole and.

Water temperature exerts a major influence on biological activity and growth, has an effect on water chemistry, can influence water quantity measurements, and governs the kinds of organisms that live in water bodies.

Many chemicals in natural waters can degrade water quality if they exceed safe levels. Nitrogen and phosphorus, for example, occur naturally in streams and rivers, and are necessary to sustain aquatic life.

But at high concentrations, nitrates can cause harm to lakes, estuaries, and other bodies of water. Even in undisturbed watersheds, nutrient concentrations vary seasonally, with flows, and.

The implications of findings for this study likely extend to other regions with similar physical and biological characteristics, stream temperature concerns, cold-water fisheries, and prescriptive riparian zone protections such as Idaho, Alaska, British Columbia, Washington, and California.

Using a global database of monthly flows in streams, Haines et al. identified 15 different river flow regimes. In the Asian-Australian monsoonal regions, they found streams with flow peaks in mid- or late-summer (Groups 6 and 7 respectively) whereas rivers with peak flows in autumn (Groups 9, 10 and 11) occur in Africa Cited by: Selected Book Chapters and Journal Articles Some of the research by faculty members and graduate students leads to publication in the form of book chapters or journal articles.

This is a list of recent publications by members of our department. Books written by our faculty are featured on our separate book page. Karen J. Bakker [ ]. Chapter One. Background Information. The Federal Phase II Stormwater regulations, 40 CFR Partrequire an operator of a small municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) to apply for coverage under an NPDES permit for discharges from its storm sewer system.

In Georgia, a general NPDES permit is used for all small MS4s. The Gulf Stream is the western boundary current of the N. Atlantic subtropical gyre. The Gulf Stream transports significant amount of warm water (heat) poleward. The averaging of velocity data from a meandering current produces a wide mean picture of the flow.

The core of the Gulf Stream current is about 90 km wide and has peak velocities of. A methodology for computing the heat flux between water and streambed was selected, evaluated, and implemented in the HSPF code. This work advances the state of the art in watershed analysis by providing a quantitative tool for relating riparian forest management to stream temperature, which is a vital component of aquatic habitat.

Classification (the ordering of objects into labelled groups based on common characteristics) has been broadly applied to river channels (Rosgen ; Poole, Frissell & Ralph ), with more than 40 geomorphically based classification schemes employed or proposed in various parts of the world, based on factors such as channel pattern, gradient Cited by: Johnson, C.D., and Williams, J.H.,Hydraulic logging methods - a summary and field demonstration in Conyers, Rockdale County, Georgia, in ed.

Introduction [2] Land use changes can lead to modifications in terrestrial energy and water balances and the availability of nutrients [Richey et al., ].As a consequence, the transport of sediments, organic matter, and nutrients to streams can also be altered.

This simple concept belies the difficulty of determining what that flow should be among competing uses for water, such as irrigation, public supply, recreation, hydropower, and aquatic habitat.
