Alex Zavarsky and Lars Duester

Data sets

Water temperature and discharge at montoring station along the Rhine A. Zavarsky and L. Düster

Short summary
River water temperature is an important parameter for water quality and an important variable for physical, chemical and biological processes. River water is also used as a cooling agent by power plants and production facilities. We study long-term trends in river water temperature and correlate them to meteorological influences and power production or economic indices.
