Abstract

The Colorado plateau has been plagued with drought throughout its existence. This lack of snow is ultimately to blame for the dry times. Having such a high dependence on snowfall makes it vital that climatic research be performed on this area. This project provides a systematic approach for predicting drought by only observing snowfall information, with the result being a forecast suggesting relief from current drought will not arrive for several years.
