  • Particular features at some watersheds account for anticipations about baseflows and observations about water temperatures.

  • For example, a wood and rock dam about 1.3 mi upstream at Barlow creates a flooded plain that likely assists in the maintenance downstream baseflow.

  • A beaver dam approximately 2 mi upstream at Scotch likely figures in recharge of its downstream baseflow.

  • Shading reasonably accounts for the lower and less variable stream temperatures at Priest as compared with temperatures at equivalently high elevations at Slate and Coal.
