  • Snow studies track changes in water availability

    New analysis of snowpack data by two research groups has changed conventional understanding of the mechanics of snowmelt: Both teams found warmer weather may change the amount of snow as well as how it melts. These studies are important in developing a better understanding of the amount of water available in snow (known as snow-water equivalent). This information can be used to calculate the ...

  • Catchment-scale evaluation of pollution potential of urban snow at two residential catchments in southern Finland

    Despite the crucial role of snow in the hydrological cycle in cold climate conditions, monitoring studies of urban snow quality often lack discussions about the relevance of snow in the catchment-scale runoff management. In this study, measurements of snow quality were conducted at two residential catchments in Espoo, Finland, simultaneously with continuous runoff measurements. The results of ...

  • Improved Water Supply Forecasts Using Soil Moisture Data

    HydraProbe used to improve water supply forecast from 3 SNOTEL sites in Idaho over traditional antecedent conditions using the principle component forecast model Much of the water in the Western United States used for irrigation, municipal supplies and hydro-electric production originates as winter snow pack at higher elevations. Since the early 1900s, the correlation between stream flow and the ...
