AGU 2017 - H024: Blue and Green Water in Cold Mountains...

Mark S. Raleigh
Dear Colleagues:

We would like to invite you to submit an abstract to the session below at the AGU Fall Meeting (Dec 11-15, 2017) in New Orleans, Louisiana. We are pleased to announce the session has confirmed Charlie Luce and John Pomeroy as the invited presenters. Please note that the abstract deadline is Wednesday, August 2 at 11:59 PM EST.

Session ID#: 
29418

Session Title:
H024. Blue and Green Water in Cold Mountains: Changes in Climate, Hydrologic Regimes, Extreme Events, and Ecological Responses

Session Description:
In cold mountainous watersheds, winter precipitation stored as snow and ice is released during the growing season as meltwater runoff. Snowpack and glacial reservoirs thus modulate the amount and timing of water availability for natural and human systems, impacting evapotranspiration, streamflow regime and extremes, growing season length, crop production, and aquatic habitat. Warmer winters may shift precipitation phase and snowmelt energy, affecting hydrologic extremes, meltwater hydrographs, and soil recharge dynamics, with consequences for water management, rain-on-snow flood risk, ecosystem services, and food-energy-water systems. This session examines how mountain ecohydrology evolves with environmental change, with specific interest in (1) key interactions between biota, climate, snow/ice, and water, (2) the frequency and severity of hydrologic extremes, and (3) precipitation phase shifts. We invite contributions addressing linkages between environmental change and cryospheric, hydrologic, and ecologic processes in mountain systems.

--Charlie Luce, U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station
