Description

Many previous investigators highlight the importance of snowfall to the water supply of the western United States (US). Consequently, the variability of snowpack, snowmelt, and snowfall has been studied extensively.

Many previous investigators highlight the importance of snowfall to the water supply of the western United States (US). Consequently, the variability of snowpack, snowmelt, and snowfall has been studied extensively. Snow level (the elevation that rainfall transitions to snowfall) directly influences the spatial extent of snowfall and has received little attention in the climate literature. In this study, the relationships between snow level and El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) as well as Pacific Decadal Oscillation (PDO) are established.
