This collection holds models and associated data for simulating river temperatures in the Colorado Rive Basin. The results and findings for the Grand Canyon portion of the Colorado River is reported in Water Resources Research article "Water Temperature Controls for Regulated Canyon‐Bound Rivers" (doi: 10.1029/2020WR027566). This study looks at the importance of a detailed radiation balance when simulating river temperatures in a deep canyon setting. The resources provided here preserve the data used in this study and allow for transparency and reproducibility of this work.
