Procedure is presented for predicting temperature of various water bodies from weather records, inflow and outflow characteristics, and surface area and volume of body of water; method can be applied to shallow lakes, flowing streams, and detention reservoirs, in which thermocline is absent and water is so stirred by wind or current that temperatures are uniform; example is given of use of method, which is easily adaptable to machine computation.
