|Evaporation, Sublimation, Water supply forecasting
A technical discussion of a water supply forecasting procedure utilizing snow water equivalent, soil moisture and spring precipitation to obtain the first estimate of volume runoff. A process of 'Successive Approximations' is employed to use the effect of total wind movement at the 750 millibar level, winter temperature, radiation, and hours of sunshine. A series of graphs are included to illustrate the procedure. Some interesting tests are cited relative to winter evaporation of ice and snow.
