Snowfall and Extreme Event Probabilistic Analysis Tool

The SFE Probabilistic Analysis Tool provides probabilistic information regarding annual snowfall totals and extreme snowfall events. The tool is informed by research on the importance of extreme snowfall events to annual snowfall totals and to interannual variability in snowfall (Lute and Abatzoglou, in press).

This tool has the potential to serve as a guidance product in decision making processes relevant to reservoir management, flood control, water supply commitments, agriculture/cropping, and other matters dependent on water supply.
