Abstract

Describes the results from a set of numerical experiments which simulate the effect of a large-scale removal of snow cover in middle and high latitudes during the early spring season, using a simplified general circulation model with a limited computational domain and idealized geography. Removal of snow cover reduces the water available to the soil through snowmelt and decreases soil moisture in this region during the following seasons.-from Authors
