Glacier Creek Upper Hydrometric (MCKGLA01H)

This dataset contains hydrometric and water temperature data for Glacier Creek upper hydrometric station. This site is part of the Living Lakes Canada Columbia Basin Water Monitoring Framework program. Glacier Creek was selected for monitoring as a glacier-fed stream in the Mid-Columbia Kootenay region. This station is nested with Glacier Creek Lower hydrometric station to provide a better understanding of processes in the watershed. The data is being collected to track the impacts of climate change on Columbia Basin water supply and support community climate adaptation.
