Precipitation, discharge and temperature variability in Atlantic salmon rivers in acid rain impacted Southern Uplands area of Nova Scotia: Fs70-1/2000-054E-PDF

The objective of the present study is to analyze hydrological data for 2 Atlantic salmon rivers within the acid impact rivers for use in aquatic resource management. Meteorological data will also be analyzed at one station representative of the study area. The specific objectives are: a) to analyze changes in precipitation and air temperatures on an annual and seasonal basis; b) to analyze changes in streamflow conditions for 2 rivers, annually and on a seasonal basis; c) to study long-term trends of air temperature, precipitation and discharge using the 10-year moving average; and d) to carry out statistical analyses to determine potential linear trends in air temperature, precipitation and discharge both annually and on a seasonal basis.
