Spot temperature measurements collected along the Quashnet River, Mashpee/Falmouth MA

Metadata Updated: July 6, 2024

Heat is used as a tracer for a variety of physical hydrogeological process. For ongoing studies related to groundwater/surface water exchange, temperatures of streambed sediment along the bank, in drainage ditches, and in the river were measured using handheld thermal infrared (FLIR Systems, Inc) cameras and thermocouple (Digi-Sense, Inc) probes. Thermal surveys of the Quashnet river were completed from August 14 to August 25, 2017. Zones of spatially-preferential groundwater discharge were identified as cold anomalies in summer, reflecting the influence from groundwater temperatures of approximately 11 degrees Celsius.
