The Pacific Northwest is unusually vulnerable to a warning climate owing to its heavy reliance on snowpack to store water for summer use. This paper outlines the state of global climate science and describes efforts by the Climate Impacts Group at the University of Washington to understand how a warming, of plausible magnitude could affect the Pacific Northwest, specifically with regard to streamflow and snowpack.
