Snow disappearance timing is dominated by forest effects on snow accumulation in warm winter climates of the Pacific Northwest, United States

2017 | Hydrological Processes
Authors Susan Dickerson-Lange (left) and Nic Wayand (right) deploying time lapse cameras to collect data.

Forests modify snow processes and affect snow water storage as well as snow disappearance timing. However, forest influences on snow accumulation and ablation vary with climate and topography and are therefore subject to temporal and spatial variability. We utilize multiple years of snow observations from across the Pacific Northwest, United States, to assess forest-snow interactions in the relatively warm winter conditions characteristic of matitime and transitional maritime-continental climates.
