  • The Impacts of Climate Change on Snowpack and Streamflow in the Western U.S. Webinar

    -
    Webinar

    Learn about the impacts of climate change on snowpack and streamflow in the western U.S. with WWA researchers Dr. Noah Molotch and Dr. Ben Livneh. Dr. Molotch presents his research mapping snow water equivalent in real time using satellite data, models, and ground stations. His presentation drew on collaborations with water resource stakeholders from across the western U.S. Dr. Livneh examined “snow drought” in the Colorado River Basin over the past century. He evaluated the importance of how snow drought is defined, its historical variability, as well as its role in modulating streamflow.

    Webinar

    This third installment in the Colorado River Basin Climate and Hydrology: State of the Science report webinar series focused on Chapter 2, which covers moisture sources, storm tracks, seasonality of precipitation, the influence of topography and elevation, snowmelt, groundwater, mechanisms of variability, and recent trends. After summarizing the current understanding in these areas, Jeff Lukas and Liz Payton concluded with research challenges and opportunities, followed by Q&A.
