|Summary:||Glaciers, permafrost, and the hydrologic cycle are expected to change in response to anticipated future atmospheric warming by the end of the 21st century, which could effect water yields to the proposed Susitna-Watana hydroelectric reservoir. This study is designed to review existing literature relevant to glacier retreat in Southcentral Alaska and the upper Susitna River watershed and to summarize the current understanding of potential future changes. This study quantifies future changes in glacier wastage, surface and groundwater, permafrost, and evapotranspiration and their combined effect on runoff into the proposed reservoir. This document satisfies the FERC-required portion of the study as presented in the Revised study plan.|

Unlike all other sections of the Initial Study Report, no section called Part C was written for Study plan Section 7.7.
This Initial Study Report completes the FERC-approved glacier and runoff changes study, so there is no corresponding study completion or study implementation report for the 2014-2015 period. However, this report is supplemented by: Glacier and runoff changes study, Final Study Report. -- October 2015. -- (Susitna-Watana Hydroelectric Project document ; no. 290).
