Effects of climatic variability on winter-spring runoff in New England river basins

Auteurs :
HARTLEY, S.

Description :
The effects of climatic variability on the time distribution of runoff and the timing and magnitude of maximum-flow events during the winter-spring season of December-April were examined through statistical analysis of hydrologic and climatic data for thirteen river basins in Vermont, New Hampshire, and Massachussetts. Within each basin, higher temperatures and lower snowfall result in a more uniform distribution of flow throughout the season. This relationship is also observed across the region's average spatial temperature gradient.
