Record #112839:

Effect of global warming on Sierra Nevada mountain snow storage / Ben J. Tsuang, John A. Dracup.

Title: Effect of global warming on Sierra Nevada mountain snow storage / Ben J. Tsuang, John A. Dracup.
Author(s): Tsuang, Ben J.
Dracup, John A.
Date: 1991.
In: Western Snow Conference. Proceedings. (1991.), Vol. 59th Annual Meeting (1991)
Abstract: Snowmelt runoff processes are analyzed using energy-based model. Using global warming scenario, results of analysis indicate that hydrograph shifts between 19 and 93 days earlier and snow season ends between 25 and 68 days earlier at elevation of 2800 m. Most striking change is decrease in snow:precipitation ratio at elevations <2300 m.
