Math functions need to be within either math tags \(a^2+b^2=c^2\) or double dollar signs $$a^2+b^2=c^2$$. The difference being, the math tag can be used inline and the double dollar sign will put the equation on it's own line and centered on the page.\(a^2+b^2=c^2\) Example using the math tagsExample using the $$ tags: $$a^2+b^2=c^2$$For expontents, you want to use the ^ symbol. So \(A^x\) would be written like this: A^x. If the exponent contains more than one character, you need to encase them in curly brackets {} so \(A^{xyz}\) would be written like A^{xyz}.

\( \sum f(x) = F(x) + g(x) \)


\(A^2 + B^2 = C^2\)

$$A_{sv} = (A_{sd} * Sn_w) - I_{vol}$$


  • \(A_{sv}\) = Average snowmelt volume (depth/unit area)
  • \(A_{sd}\) = Average snowpack depth at the initiation of the snowmelt period
  • \(Sn_w\) = Typical snowpack water at time of melt
  • \(I_{vol}\) = Estimated infiltration volume likely to occur during a 10-day melt period.
