Impacts of Sub-daily Temperature Variations around the Freezing Temperature on A Hydrological Model using Macro-scale Snowmelt Simulations

By Ashley Rone Water supply research predictions are essential for agriculture, recreational, and environmental tasks in North Dakota. North Dakota’s unique climate is important for water security research conducted on snowmelt fluctuations in freezing temperatures. The information collected from macro-hydrological models helps identify dependable water supplies in the state and other similar geographical regions. North […]
