SSTEMP is a much-scaled down version of the Stream Network Temperature Model (SNTEMP) by Theurer et at. (1984). SSTEMP may be used to evaluate alternative reservoir release proposals, analyze the effects of changing riparian shade of the physical features of a stream, and examine the effects of different stream withdrawals and returns on instream temperature. Unlike the large network model, SNTEMP, this program handles only single stream segments for a single time period (e.g., month, week, day) for any given “run”. Initially designed as a training tool, SSTEMP may be used satisfactorily for a variety of simple causes that one might face on a day-to-day basis. It is especially useful to perform sensitivity and uncertainty analysis…
