Snowpack properties vary dramatically over a wide range of spatial scales, from crystal microstructure to regional snow climates. Knowledge of snow depth variability in subalpine and alpine environments is important for understanding and modeling hydrologic, ecologic, and avalanche processes. Additionally, knowledge of how snow depth variability changes(More)
The performance of nine spatial interpolation models was evaluated to estimate snowmelt contributions to streamflow in the West Glacier Lake watershed (0.61 km 2), in the Snowy Range Mountains of Wyoming. West Glacier Lake watershed has a unique problem in that measured streamflow out of the watershed has been previously estimated at 40% to 130% greater(More)
Previous research using meteorological station data suggests that temperatures and precipitation have been changing more across the semi-arid and arid country of Mongolia than in many other locations across the globe. We used gridded monthly data to determine the annual and seasonal rate of change in total precipitation (P), maximum temperature (Tmax), and(More)
Accurate estimation of the spatial and temporal distribution of rainfall is a crucial input parameter for hydrologic model calibration and validation. The number of rain gauges used to monitor rainfall is generally inadequate to resolve the spatial and temporal distributions of rainfall over a watershed. Typically, spatial rainfall distributions have been(More)
The snow surface is very dynamic, and the roughness of the snowpack surface varies spatially and temporally. The snow surface roughness influences the movement of air across the snow surface as well as the resulting transfers of energy, and is used to estimate the sensible and latent heat fluxes to and/or from the snow surface to the atmosphere. In the(More)
River systems flowing through semi-arid and arid regions provide critical ecosystem services for inhabitants of these areas. In remote and/or difficult to access areas away from population centers, few direct measurements exist to characterize the nature of streamflow in these systems. The Tuin River flows from the rugged high mountain and forest steppe(More)

Mongolia is a semi-arid and arid country in Asia where the climate has been changing more drastically than many other locations across the globe. The proceedings of the " Trans-disciplinary Research Conference: Building Resilience of Mongolian Rangelands " is divided into five sections: 1) Rangeland Ecology and Management, 2) Climate Change and Hydrology,(More)
