Description

The hydrology of the Great Salt Lake depends on complex interactions between net precipitation within its basin, surface and subsurface runoff into the lake, and evaporation from its surface. In turn, the level and temperature of the lake influence the intensity and frequency of lake-breeze fronts and lake-effect snowstorms that affect the populace and water resources of northern Utah. Current capabilities to monitor weather and climate variations in the vicinity of the Great Salt Lake will be reviewed.
