Snow and runoff: processes, sensitivity and vulnerability / Ming-Ko Woo, John Pomeroy.

Title: Snow and runoff: processes, sensitivity and vulnerability / Ming-Ko Woo, John Pomeroy.
Author(s): Woo, Ming-Ko.
Pomeroy, John.
Date: 2012.
Publisher: Oxford: Wiley-Blackwell
In: Changing cold environments : a Canadian perspective. (2012.),
Abstract: Summarizes variation in snow cover duration across Arctic, sub-Arctic and temperate zones of Canada, before following fate of typical snowflakes from arrival on land to dissipation into atmosphere or transformation into river flow. Examines: snow accumulation (cyclonic activity, lake-effect snow, blowing snow and topographic influence); effect of land cover (shrubs, forests, agricultural fields, and built-up areas); snow ablation (relationship between snowmelt and topography and vegetation, and meltwater percolation through snow); runoff processes (infiltration and runoff generation); and streamflow (channel processes and snowmelt streamflow regimes). Discusses snowmelt floods in large basins (e.g., Liard Basin, NWT and Red River Basin, Southern Manitoba), and snow vulnerability to climate warming.
