The purpose of this report is to summarize the proceedings and discussion from two workshops on the subject of heat transfer processes in forested stream environments. The workshops, held in Lacey, WA in February and May of 2001, were organized as part of the Cooperative, Monitoring, Evaluation, and Research (CMER) program, and sponsored by the Riparian Scientific Advisory Group (RSAG). The goals of the Temperature Workshops were to identify where scientific consensus exists and where it is lacking on heat transfer processes in forested watersheds, to provide overviews of past and current research, and to identify future priorities based on stakeholder review of this information. Specific topics addressed included: The effects of direct solar radiation to surface waters and the cumulative effects of heating from upstream sources; Currently used temperature models, addressing their inputs, strengths, and weaknesses; Heat transfer processes via groundwater; and Heat transfer processes via microclimate conditions (both in the riparian zon
