The Northwest Watershed Research Center (NWRC) and the Reynolds Creek Experimental Watershed (RCEW) were established in 1960 to conduct long-term research in the areas of water supply, seasonal snow, soil freezing, water quality and rangeland hydrology.
The scope of NWRC and RCEW research has been subsequently broadened to include additional modeling and remote sensing objectives, and landscape-scale processes related to fire and invasive weeds.
Northwest Watershed Research Center (NWRC) partnered with NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory on the Airborne Snow Observatory (ASO) to aid in water supply and flood mitigation during the historic drought in California. The project provides snowpack reports during the water year
