Axelson Sauchyn Barichivich-2009-New reconstructions of streamflow variability in the South Saskatchewan River Basin from a network of tree ring chronologies

In western Canada growing demand for water resources has increased vulnerability
to hydrological drought. The near full allocation of water supplies in the Oldman and
Bow River subbasins of the South Saskatchewan River Basin has resulted in a moratorium
on new surface water licenses. In this region, short instrumental records limit the detection
of long-term hydrological variability.
