Trends in Peak Streamflow Timing

Trends in Peak Streamflow Timing

Top map shows changes in runoff timing in snowmelt-driven streams from 1948 to 2002 with red circles indicating earlier runoff, and blue circles indicating later runoff. Bottom map shows projected changes in snowmelt-driven streams by 2080-2099, compared to 1951-1980, under a higher emissions scenario.1  Image Reference: Stewart et al.2
