Improving Snowmelt Runoff Forecasting

The Western States Water Council and the California Department of Water Resources are cosponsoring a workshop on Improving Snowmelt Runoff Forecasting. Improving operational runoff forecasting to meet the needs of water managers and users is a challenge, particularly given limited agency budgets for observations, monitoring, research, development, and modeling. Climate change and variability seem to be driven faster than our science and technological advances. Moreover, it takes a relatively long period of time to put improvements in place and build confidence in accurate and durable projections. The purpose of this one-day workshop is to explore our present capacity and opportunities to take the next steps to improve runoff forecasting.
