Continuous Stream Temperature and Flow Monitoring Workshop
This two-day, invitation-only workshop is organized by Allison Roy of the UMass Amherst Mass. Coop Unit with a steering committee of leaders from USGS, USEPA, MA Div. of Ecological Restoration, USFS, Michigan State University and Tetra Tech, Inc. This workshop is funded by USGS through its WRRI program via the MA Water Resources Research Center.
The first day will include brief presentations describing the reference monitoring network, importance of continuous monitoring, monitoring protocols, and data management. Then, we will visit streams in the Amherst area with existing gages to describe installation procedures and demonstrate sampling techniques. The second day will be restricted to state participants in the reference network, and we will discuss data management and analysis, logistics of field effort, and efforts to seek additional funding to support the network. Workshop attendance is by invitation only, and will take place at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and nearby streams.
