A New Method to Characterize Changes in the Seasonal Cycle of Snowpack
Description: "In the western US, water stored as mountain snowpack comprises a large percentage of the total water needed to meet the region’s demands, and it is likely that as the planet continues to warm, mountain snowpack will decline. However, detecting such trend

Snowpack Change From 1982 to 2016 Over Conterminous United States
Description: "Snow water equivalent (SWE) variability and its drivers over different regions remain uncertain due to lack of representativeness of point measurements and deficiencies of existing coarse-resolution SWE products. Here, for the first time, we quantify and
