Add Your Data Set

Use our Data Publishing Service to add your data set to the Data Store.

The StreamNet Data Store is a searchable archive of data sets related to fish and other aquatic resources that are not of the specific data types included in the main StreamNet database. These data sets come from many different sources and are provided for download in their original formats. To add your own data set to the Data Store, use our Data Publishing Service.

StreamNet did not participate in creation of most of these data sets, and we are not able to answer questions about those we did not help develop. For questions about the data sets available from this page, please contact the originator of the particular data set.

To search the Data Store, enter key words, project numbers, species, methods, etc. into the search box below and click "Search".

Nez Perce Soil & Water Conservation District 2009 Stream Temperature Data

Data Categories Hourly stream temperature data
Dates of Data 6/10/2009 TO 11/19/2009
Data Set Status Complete
Data Set Update Schedule Updated annually
Date Data Set Published on StreamNet Data Store 6/2/2010
Project Name & Number LBPA-42391
Purpose of Data Set Purpose provided in Abstract
Summary / Abstract Stream temperature data is collected to establish baseline water temperatures and assist in the inventory and identification of stream reaches with high water temperatures. The temperature measurements are recorded using temperature loggers (continual temperature recording devices) for the seasonal high summer temperatures.

Broad Category of Methods Field
Data Collection Methods Temperature loggers are placed inside housings supplied by the manufacturer, with desiccant and identification material. The duration was for 165 days at 1 hour intervals. The temperature loggers are also set to take the maximum temperature achieved over the preceding 1 hour period. Each temperature logger is placed inside the protective housing, and the housing is located in a metal case with cable. The cable tail is then attached to a permanent object on the bank. This temperature logger, metal case, and cable bundle is then placed in a relatively deep location with: 1) photos; 2) write on, aluminum, metal tags; 3) hand drawn sketches; and 4) measuring and recording compass position and distance from a permanent landmark. Field stream temperature measurements will be recorded when the devices are retrieved. The data is then downloaded and converted into a text format.
