Abstract

The control exerted over summer water temperatures in the Hurunui River by discharge and meteorological factors was investigated firstly, by regression analysis of available historical data and secondly, by applying a simple energy budget model. Statistical analysis showed that under natural flow, water temperatures are inversely related to discharge and directly related to maximum air temperature, though there was considerable scatter in the relationship. -from Authors
