Rain, Snow, and Spring Runoff Revisited.
Bohren, Craig F.
Physics Teacher, v33 n2 p79-81 Feb 1995
Explores the theory behind the correlation between warm rain, rapid snowmelt, and the subsequent runoff using the concepts of enthalpy, thermal transfer, and energy transfer. Concludes that rapid runoff is not a consequence of rain per se but of the high humidities associated with the rain. (JRH)
