Dissolved oxygen and temperature dynamics in the Piako catchment
Report: TR 2014/50
Author: Paul Franklyn (NIWA)
The aim of this project was to empirically evaluate the interrelationships between flow and dissolved oxygen and water temperature dynamics in the Piako catchment. This was to be achieved throughthe following programme of work:
- Characterisation of the temporal dynamics of dissolved oxygen and water temperature at a range of sites in the Piako catchment during summer low flow conditions.
- Analysis and interpretation of the results with respect to flow and the known tolerances of aquatic organisms.
