... m wide) incise the southern (equator-facing) wall of South Fork. The two longest extend c. 3 km from perennial snowpacks in alcoves along the rim of the valley wall to the floor of the valley ( Fig. 2 ). These two gullies, Gully A and Gully B ( Fig. 2 ), occur within the watershed of an ephemeral...

... in all model runs); in the second, air temperatures act upon an overlying snowpack that insulates the ice (0.3 m thick). In both cases, the bottom of the ice layer is held at a constant 0 °C to mimic contact with lake water, and the temperature at the top of the ice or snow is assumed equal to the (time...

... the entire study period, indicating a radiative cooling of the snow surface. Not enough energy was available at the surface to induce melting; however, the energy available during some specific days of the winter period was consumed either to warm the snowpack or for sublimation processes. The model was able...

... recharge and streamflow has long been known. This study was conducted to investigate the variability of soil wetting and drying dynamics within a network of soil moisture sensors beneath a seasonally persistent snowpack in California’s southern Sierra Nevada. Data were analyzed to quantify the persistence...

... plays a key role in the isotope hydrology of meteoric water systems in the continental interior southwestern United States. We demonstrate that altitude-dependent sublimation of the winter snowpack is a viable mechanism for the observed isotopic enrichment and reduced δ 18 O-elevation gradients of Basin...

... and the soil water balance, especially in snow-dominated systems. Many hydrologic models treat snow in a simplified manner. The snowpack is represented by a single layer ( Downer and Ogden, 2004 ), two layers ( Wigmosta et al., 2002 ), or three layers ( Kavvas et al., 2004 ). In reality, snow is made up...
