The project focuses specifically on collecting data on the quality of salmon spawning habitat, specifically egg incubation temperature in Mat-Su basin streams identified as being sensitive to increases in air temperature and those thought to be buffered from air temperature effects through groundwater inputs or other characteristics. The study will develop a better understanding of the interaction between air, surface water and groundwater temperatures and how they relate to salmon incubation on a local scale.
