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.

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.
