Full title

Precipitation-snowmelt timing and snowmelt augmentation of large peak flow events, western Cascades, Oregon

Abstract

Rain-on-snow events are responsible for the largest, most damaging floods in western Oregon, but the precipitation, snowmelt, and streamflow dynamics of these events are not well understood. This project aims to clarify rain-on-snow impacts in the H. J. Andrews Experimental Forest through an event classification scheme and the use of wavelet coherence to assess rainfall-snowmelt synchrony during large and extreme storms.
