Mapping “ At Risk ” Snow in the Pacific Northwest

  title={Mapping “ At Risk ” Snow in the Pacific Northwest},
  author={Anne W. Nolin},
One of the most visible and widely felt impacts of climate warming is the change (mostly loss) of low-elevation snow cover in the midlatitudes. Snow cover that accumulates at temperatures close to the ice-water phase transition is at greater risk to climate warming than cold climate snowpacks because it affects both precipitation phase and ablation rates. This study maps areas in the Pacific Northwest region of the United States that are potentially at risk of converting from a snow-dominated… CONTINUE READING
