Table 3. Prediction errors of the Trading Tool when used to estimate the effects of several hypothetical heat-trading test cases.

[A positive mean, minimum, or maximum error indicates that the tool gave a result that was larger than that predicted by the Willamette River flow and temperature models. All results are based on the 95th percentile of the 7dADM water-temperature difference, as described in the section, “Methods.” Abbreviations: 7dADM, 7-day moving average of the daily maximum; °C, degrees Celsius]
