Understanding the impacts of surface-groundwater conditions on stream fishes under altered base-flow conditions


January 2014 - May 2018


The purpose of this project is to demonstrate the interaction between water temperature and fish fitness through interactions of surface water and groundwater. Understanding the nexus of these relationships will allow future water allocations or managed releases to benefit economic activities while protecting biological diversity.
