Stream Temperature Study

Tidbit Data Logger

Tidbit Data Logger

The Morrison Creek Streamkeepers have recently installed three small temperature “dataloggers” that automatically record the stream water temperature every 4 hours. The 1st of the dataloggers is located near the headwaters, the 2nd is located down near the mouth of Morrison Creek at the very bottom of the watershed.A third was recently added to Nellie Creek, a tiny but unique tributary in the headwaters. Only a meter wide, this creek has an unusual temperature profile, ideal lamprey spawning habitat and is also heavily used by coho, and in good years by pink spawners. Data from the “Tid Bits” is uploaded to a computer using a portable “Shuttle” device. Here is a photo of a dataloggers. Go to the Assessment and Monitoring section to learn more about this study.
