Stream Discharge and water temperature were collected with a Solinst Model 3001 LT Levelogger at Bell Canyon Creek at Winchester Canyon Rd, BC02 in the Santa Barbara coastal area (site ID: BC02). Data are reported hourly. Stage values were converted to discharge using a rating curve developed with stream channel cross-sections, roughness estimates and the HEC-RAS model.
