A need has been established for the use of both deterministic and probabilistic techniques in the development of prediction models for river water temperatures. A corresponding need exists for similar techniques in the estimation of man-made thermal inputs to large rivers primarily as a result of projected large increases in nuclear and fossil-fuel production of electrical power. Thus the report demonstrates the applicability of power spectral density techniques, Fourier series analysis, and linear regression to the mathematical modeling of river water temperature. Consideration is also given to the problem of estimating thermal inputs. A predictive model, based on the above analysis methods, is proposed.
