Watersheds within the Upper Colorado River Basin, like most snow-dominated headwaters, are considered especially vulnerable to climate change as evidence suggests warming trends are amplified with increased elevation. Dr. Rosemary Carrol will explore how climate-induced changes in snowpack and vegetation alters how high mountain watersheds store and release water, and implications for water management.
