Snow Basin Indices were created to provide spatial representation of the snow basin indices developed by the River Forecast Centre as part of provincial snow pack analysis completed in the Snow Conditions and Water Supply Bulletins.
Data used in the creation of Snow Basin Indices is considered preliminary and may include errors associated with data collection or transmission, or in analysis of historic statistics. Snow basin index values may be updated upon review.
Snow data includes manual and automated snow water equivalent measurements managed by the Ministry of Environment and Climate Change Strategy's Snow Program. Snow Basin Indices are calculated based on basin-averaged snow water equivalent from measured monitoring locations within each snow basin area. Historic analysis of basin-average snow water equivalent are used as reference value and the snow basin index value is compared as a percentage of the current measurement to historic normals (eg. average over the 1981-2010 period).
