Red River Project

Strategies for Thermal Restoration of a Chinook Salmon Spawning and Rearing Stream Using a Heat Transport Model

A heat transport model, a combination of a hydraulic and a heat balance model, implemented in the computer program AQUASIM, is being used on Red River to investigate the effects of different scenarios in stream temperature behavior. Therefore, it is not only necessary to monitor stream temperature and meteorological parameters, but also to survey hydraulic parameters and streambed geometry. The results of the modeling work will be used to develop strategies for thermal stream restoration.
