Noah Molotch will present his research mapping snow water equivalent in real-time using satellite data, models, and ground stations. His presentation will draw on collaborations with water resource stakeholders from across the western U.S.
Ben Livneh will examine “snow drought” in the Colorado River Basin over the past century. He will evaluate the importance of how snow-drought is defined, its historical variability, as well as its role in modulating streamflow. He will also summarize recently completed work that examines the impact of anomalously low snowpack on streamflow prediction across the West and discuss ongoing efforts that explore new tools in seasonal water supply prediction.
