One of four papers dealing with snow hydrology of water yield from forested areas of different climatic areas in the united States.An analysis of a four year study of the effects pertaining to snow accumulation. Size of year (above or below average), elevation aspect and percent canopy cover, all are shown to have a marked effect on the water yield from areas in the Northern Rocky mountain forest covered watersheds in the Priest River Experimental Forest, northwest of Spokane, Washington. A curvilinear multiple regression formula was used to evaluate the individual effects of the several independent variables on snow water accumulation.
