|Title:||Use of air-water relationships for predicting water temperature|
|Author(s):||Kothandaraman, Veerasamy; Evans, Ralph L.|
Application of harmonic analysis to average daily air and water temperature records for a given location indicates that the first harmonic accounts for a major portion of the total variance in the records. Water temperature residuals are well correlated with air temperature residuals. Parametric values of a mathematical model for predicting water temperatures from air temperature records are stable from year to year. The water-air temperature relationship appears to be a stationary linear process. Consequently, it is possible to predict water temperatures at a specific location from the air temperature records, provided both water and air temperature records are available for another similarly situated water body. Air and Illinois River water temperature data at Peoria and Havana, Illinois, were used for the study."
