AGU session: Runoff Generation in Snow Dominated Regions: Connecting Seasonal Snowpacks and Streamflow Response

Ryan Webb

Hi Everyone,


Please consider submitting an abstract to the following Hydrology/Cryosphere cross-listed session at AGU in New Orleans this year.


H108:

Runoff Generation in Snow Dominated Regions: Connecting Seasonal Snowpacks and Streamflow Response


Session ID#: 29503

Session Description:
Over a billion people worldwide rely on water resources that are derived from snow in mountainous regions. Understanding both the volume of water stored in seasonal snowpacks and its subsequent runoff generation is vital for improved water resource management and planning in these regions. Advances in field measurements, remote sensing observations, and modeling capabilities are critical for linking snowpack information with streamflow response and particularly pertinent to understand how changing snow dynamics will impact future water infrastructure and supply. This session seeks to explore the allocation of snowmelt to various hydrological processes including overland flow, shallow subsurface flow, groundwater recharge, evapotranspiration, and hydrograph separation between the various streamflow components. We invite submissions focusing on the connection between seasonal snowpacks and streamflow response through an improved understanding of runoff generation processes, from the catchment to continental scale.
