Tool by the Central Valley Temperature Mapping and Prediction (CVTEMP) for modeled and observed temperature and flow data for the Sacramento River associated with Shasta Reservoir, Shasta Dam Operations, and meteorological conditions.
The NorWeST webpage hosts stream temperature data and climate scenarios in a variety of user-friendly digital formats for streams and rivers across the western U.S. The temperature database was compiled from hundreds of biologists and hydrologists working for >100 resource agencies and contains >200,000,000 hourly temperature recordings at >20,000 unique stream sites. Those temperature data were used with spatial statistical network models to develop 36 historical and future climate...
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), in partnership with the California Department of Water Resources, has developed the Airborne Snow Observatory (ASO), an imaging spectrometer and scanning lidar system, to quantify snow-water equivalent and snow albedo.
The California-Nevada Climate Applications Program (CNAP) produces the Sierra Nevada Water Storage Tracker that provides daily reservior storage and snowpack information.
