Description Snowfall is a critical component of the hydrologic cycle of mountainous regions in the Western United States as snowfall accounts for the majority of annual precipitation. Point scale precipitation measurements of snowfall are often inaccurate due to wind effects, quality control and improper gage calibration, and spatial estimates between these precipitation gauges are challenging in complex terrain. There is a need to improve spatial distributions of winter precipitation for snow,...
