Abstract

In the eighty-one hydrographically closed basins within Nevada many large lakes developed during the pluvial climate of the Pleistocene. Pluvial lake area and tributary basin area have been established from the geomorphic evidence. A method is presented for estimating the climatic parameters of the lake forming pluvial climates using modern climatic relationships within the Great Basin and known hydrologic responses to varied climates. The quantitative approach could be used to estimate water supply change due to given climatic change.
