Poster #87: Mallory Philliber – Red Butte Watershed Seasonal Streamflow and Evapotranspiration Partitioning

<< Return to the Virtual URS Main Page

Faculty mentor: Gabriel Bowen

The relative abundance of heavier H and O isotopes indicates what season water fell as precipitation. A Seasonal Origin Index quantifies whether winter or summer precipitation is more represented in streamflow and evapotranspiration. Calculating a Young Water Fraction measures the fraction of water in a catchment that is younger than about 2.3 months. End-Member Splitting Analysis tells what fraction of streamflow and evapotranspiration originated as winter or summer precipitation.
