C010:
Diagnosis of Hydrological Change in Cold Regions





Session ID#: 24000

Session Description:
In recent decades warming trends and other changes in climate have driven major and rapid changes in landscapes, ecology, cryosphere, and hydrology, especially in high latitude and mountainous cold regions.  Hydrological responses have often been complex and spatially and temporally variable as a result of multiple interacting processes, sometimes compensatory, and there is a need to diagnose and better understand the causes and underlying mechanisms of response to be able to improve model projections of future change.  This session invites papers that address the analysis and diagnosis of hydrological change in cold regions using observations and models.  Key questions to be addressed include how have hydrological processes and their interactions changed in response to climatic drivers, what are the feedbacks and thresholds leading to system changes, and/or what factors impart hydrological resilience or lack thereof?
