Overview: Mountain Water Futures
Mountain Water Futures is part of Global Water Futures, a transdisciplinary Canadian initiative to provide information and tools to adapt cold region water management under a changing climate
The goal of mountain water futures is to is to provide users and stakeholders across a range of sectors with better information, tools and techniques to manage uncertain water futures, including to improve our ability to predict future hydrological regimes, and plan appropriate adaptations in Canada's western mountains. This region is undergoing dramatic change as glaciers recede, snowpacks diminish, permafrost thaws and vegetation regimes change. These changes, coupled with changing weather and climate, are driving changes to virtually all components of the hydrological cycle and resultant flow regimes.
