May I ask you a question?

Why do you think it is so important to study the snowpack levels?

Update:

Thanks for your help.

I couldn't have done it without you.

Nice to meet you.^_^

    snowpack levels [ 高山]年雪量

    Water supplies come from glaciers and mountain snowpack. As temperatures rise, the elevation at which snow normally falls will increase, and there will be less water available during run-off seasons. Winter and early spring will produce more water than late spring flows, which will decrease the amount of available water during the summer. A lack of water will be problematic for both humans and the region's wildlife. This issue is also concerning because as water levels decrease, the municipal water supply problem will affect different regions differently depending on the amount of public served by them and the amount of water supply that they can tap into.
