Title: Summary Report Describing the Preparation of Hydrologic Data Bases for Pacific Northwest HUC4 Watersheds Used to Identify Basin Hydrologic Type and Quantify Temperature Sensitivity
Author: Climate Leadership Initiative; Hamlet, Alan F.
Abstract: Based on some existing macro-scale hydrologic simulations for the Pacific Northwest (PNW) from 1916-2003 (described by Hamlet and Lettenmaier 2005, 2006; Hamlet et al. 2005, 2006), a set of hydrologic data bases summarizing the basin average water balance for moderate sized watersheds in OR, ID, WA and BC for different regional temperature regimes was produced for this project. The primary products to be produced from this information were a map showing the classification of each watershed at the Hydrologic Unit Code 4 (HUC4) level according to hydrologic type (rain dominant, mixed rain and snow, or snowmelt dominant), and a set of data bases quantifying the hydrologic sensitivity of each watershed to various levels of warming for a constant precipitation regime.
