Theodore B. Barnhart

Dr. Theodore B. Barnhart studies the connection between the mountain snowpack and streamflow.

Dr. Barnhart is interested in furthering the understanding of how changes in the mountain snowpack translate into changes in streamflow and how that process varies across landscapes, land cover types, and climate systems. He is also interested in understanding the water resources implications of the changing mountain snowpack and streamflow and the effects on downstream stakeholders. He uses numerical snowpack and hydrologic models for his research along with observational and remote sensing data sets.
