New Study Identifies Mountain Snowpack Most “At-Risk” from Climate Change

CPO-funded scientists theorize why snowpack in coastal regions, the Arctic, and the Western U.S. may be among the most at-risk for premature melt from rising temperatures

Climate scientists identify regional variations in snowpack melt as temperatures increase and present a theory that explains which mountain snowpacks worldwide are most “at-risk” from climate change.
