Abstract

Streamflows from the Colorado alpine are an important contributions to the water ressources of the state and are generated almost entirely by melting of the seasonal snow cover. As such, they are remarkably predictable, following the temporal patterns of solar radiation which drives snowmelt. Together, these snowmelt-driven cycles account for up to 90 % of the variability in streamflow. Summer rainfall, though occasionally intense, has relatively little hydrologic influence in this system
