Snowline pattern survey is a technique for mapping the extent of snow cover in a watershed before, during and after peak flows associated with snow melt. The intent of the survey is to delineate the major source areas of the watershed that contribute most to peak flows. Currently a default area is used for all interior watersheds that may not be accurate for watersheds that occupy the Okanagan and Thompson plateaus. The intent is to map snowline patterns for a number of important watersheds in Weyerhaeuser?s operating area which includes a Community watershed (Penticton Creek). This is the second year of a five year project.
