Researchers Notice Snowpack Melting Faster In Our Region
To hear that snowpack in our region melts earlier due to climate change surprises no one. What does surprise in recently published research is that the situation is not the same for snowpack everywhere.
In the United States, further west and further south appears to mean earlier melting of mountain snowpack than in other regions.
