Abstract

This study analyzes the influence of large-scale climate patterns on precipitation variability in the Colorado River Basin. Large-scale climate patterns, like ENSO and PDO, are associated with regional hydrologic variations. In order to link large-scale climatic variations to the variations of precipitation in the basin, a conceptual influence index is developed, and its spatial variability in the basin is examined. Various possible combinations of teleconnections are examined using the conceptual climate phase representing extraordinary climatic fluctuation to investigate their influences on seasonal precipitation variations in the basin.
