This study used the Air2Stream model to evaluate the effects of air temperature and streamflow variations on riverine water temperature from 1950 to 2015 within the Fraser River Basin (British Columbia, Canada). The results indicate that water temperatures are rising, which presents challenges for salmon populations that return to the area for spawning.
