Potential impacts of a warming climate on water availability in snow-dominated regions
All currently available climate models predict a near-surface warming trend under the influence of rising levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere. In addition to the direct effects onExpand

A Long-Term Hydrologically Based Dataset of Land Surface Fluxes and States for the Conterminous United States*
Abstract A frequently encountered difficulty in assessing model-predicted land–atmosphere exchanges of moisture and energy is the absence of comprehensive observations to which model predictions canExpand

Hydrologic Implications of Dynamical and Statistical Approaches to Downscaling Climate Model Outputs
Six approaches for downscaling climate model outputs for use in hydrologic simulation were evaluated, with particular emphasis on each method's ability to produce precipitation and other variablesExpand

Surface soil moisture parameterization of the VIC-2L model: Evaluation and modification
Abstract HAPEX-MOBILHY data, consisting of one year of hourly atmospheric forcing data at Caumont (SAMER No. 3, 43.68°N, 0.1°W) were used repeatedly to run the two-layer Variable InfiltrationExpand
