snow hydrology, machine learning, data assimilation, water resources management, water supply forecasting


Examining the Relationships between Snowpack, Precipitation Phase, and Streamflow; This study investigates the relationship between snowpack, precipitation phase, and river streamflow using data from the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest. Building upon previous research, the study explores the impact of interannual shifts from snow to rain precipitation on streamflow.
