This dataset represents Runoff change, from Basin Characterization Model (BCM) output using the PCM A2 Scenario in central Sierra Nevada California, for 2010-2039. The data was processed using historic Runoff (1979-2000) and Runoff (2010-2039) to calculate change. Runoff: Amount of water that becomes stream flow, summed annually. Modeled as amount of water that exceeds total soil storage and rejected recharge. The California Basin Characterization Model (BCM) climate dataset provides historical and projected climate surfaces for the state at a 270 meter resolution. The historical data is based on 4 kilometer PRISM data, and the projected climate surfaces are based on the A2 and B1 scenarios of the PCM and GFDL GCMs. The BCM approach [...]
