KeywordsSnow survey problems

Six problems dealing with streamflow forecasting from snow surveys and other factors involved in producing streamflow from snowmelt, are listed and discussed: 1) Can a series of streams be estimated according to a standard or must each be a problem by itself? 2) Would a master station be more desirable for giving scientific data to all agencies concerned? 3) What is the best method of determining the long time effects of dry year on runoff, soil capacity, etc.? 4) Has any method been devised for determining soil capacity for use in snow survey forecasting? 5) What is the effect of wind, temperature, rain, topography, porosity, and soil temperature on snowmelt runoff? 6) How much variation in time is permissible in consecutive years in making snow surveys to still get comparable results? These 6 points were suggested for future papers and discussion at forthcoming meetings.
