Water Temperature

Water Temperature, aside from water movement, temperature is one of the most important controlling factors of the aquatic environment.  <<<...return

Temperature is an always changing parameter. Night to day, season to season, and year to year; the temperature of water changes enough to influence many characteristics and the aquatic life in the water.

Water Temperature Definition
Water Temperature can be explained through energy balance. Heat energy and heat transfer in water is a relationship between heat input and heat output ± heat storage.  more….>>>

Water Temperature Influences in Streams and Rivers
The temperature of headwater streams is variable, but as the downstream water volume increases and becomes more constant, the range of temperature variation decreases.  more….>>>

Water Temperature Patterns in Lakes
One of the most significant phenomena of freshwater lakes are the thermal gradients that develop over the seasons. In many lakes, these variations take the form of pronounced stratification of lake water temperature.  more….>>>

Water Temperature Significance in Natural Water
Aside from the temperature variations and thermal stratifications of water, temperature also influences dissolved gases, viscosity, reaction rates and solubility of salts.  more….>>>

Water Temperature Effects on Fish and Aquatic Life
Changes in temperature affect aquatic life. Temperature determines which organisms will thrive and which will diminish in numbers and size.  more….>>>
