Hydrology and Water Resources in Arizona and the Southwest
Abstract:
Forest openings affect a snowpack during both accumulation and melt phases. At any point in time, a snowpack is the integrated result of all accumulation, redistribution, and melt processes that have taken place before the time of measurement. Since snowpacks do not always have distinct accumulation and melt phases, it is difficult to determine the effect that an opening will have on a snowpack regime. This paper describes an analysis of the effects of openings in Arizona ponderosa pine forests on snowpacks in and adjacent to the openings, using readily available input variables.
