Abstract:
A validation study of snowpack inventory-prediction equations was conducted during 1972-73. The study was implemented on three different study sites within the ponderosa pine forests in Arizona. Development of inventory-prediction equations to predict the snowpack water equivalent at times not previously described was also completed. Original snowpack inventory-prediction equations did not adequately predict the snowpack water equivalent for the 1972-73 winter season. Thus, new snowpack inventory-prediction equations were developed. The snowpack water equivalent for 1972-73 was five-to-nine times above normal, which may have been a cause for the failure of the original inventory-prediction equations to validate.
