Abstract

We created six new tree-ring chronologies in northern Utah, which were used with preexisting chronologies from Utah and western Wyoming to reconstruct mean annual flow for the Logan River, the largest tributary of the regionally important Bear River. Two reconstruction models were developed, a...

Abstract

This study focuses on regionalization and reconstruction of April 1 snow water equivalent (SWE) of snow courses stations located in the Upper Colorado River basin (UCRB) and evaluates regional drought scenarios for the last 480 years. Rotated principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis...

Abstract

Tree-ring records spanning the past seven centuries from the central and southern Rocky Mountains were studied using wavelet analysis to examine multidecadal (>30-70 yr) patterns of drought variation. Fifteen tree-ring series were grouped into five regional composite chronologies based on shared ...

Abstract

This article evaluates drought scenarios of the Upper Colorado River basin (UCRB) considering multiple drought variables for the past 500 years and positions the current drought in terms of the magnitude and frequency. Drought characteristics were developed considering water-year data of UCRB's...

Abstract

We examine instrumental meteorological records to compare recent precipitation regimes in the eastern and western Uinta Mountains region of Utah. The comparison demonstrates that, although the summer monsoon contributes a higher proportion of annual precipitation in the east, the two regions are...

Abstract

Two ring-width chronologies from Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menzeisii) and one from pinyon pine (Pinus edulis) were used to reconstruct mean annual discharge of Ashley Creek in the Uinta Mountains, Utah, for the years AD 1637-1970. A backward-elimination multiple linear-regression model identified...
