Transcript
Major Topic/Science Question and reason for rapid publication (255 characters):
We address the question of how temperature- and precipitation-driven snowpack variability
respond to changes in climate. This is an urgent question posed by a 2015 GRL article restricted
to historical observations.
New Scientific Knowledge and scientific advances allowed (255 characters):
We discover that expanded elevations of snowpack are vulnerable to interannual temperature
variations under climate change. The density of our data also informs a reformulation of
correlation-elevation models previously inferred from sparse observations.
Broad Implications and scientific communities impacted (255 characters):
We characterize climate change-driven modifications to snowpack variability across a large
spatial domain (the western U.S). These results have broad implications for hydrology, ecology,
and climate change research at the local, state, and regional level.
Key Points (140 characters):
Dynamical downscaling reveals threshold elevations (1574-2119 m) dividing precipitation- and
temperature-driven snowpack variability
These thresholds rise 317 m on average across six mountainous regions under moderate endof-century climate change
The threshold elevation shift generally overtakes a range’s lower tier, but reaches mountain
peaks in modest topography
