This tool is designed as an interactive method for exploring changes in snowpack in the western U.S., with a particular focus on how interannual variability of snowpack amount, measured as annual maximum snow water equivalent (SWEmax), and timing, measured as date of SWEmax (DMS), are changing.
Instructions: Use the tabs at the bottom to select a time period, snowpack variable, summary statistic, and GCM (including a 10-model mean). You can also click on the map to display visualizations of the distribution of SWEmax and DMS values over historic and RCP 8.5 30-year periods. To zoom in on a subset of the map, brush over the area you'd like to see and then double-click; to zoom back out, double-click again.
