Abstract

The Snowmelt Runoff Model (SRM) has been successfully applied in different catchment areas worldwide.As input to the model periodic snow cover maps and meteorological data, such as temperature and precipitation, have to be provided. For the present application in the Himalayas (Beas basin) it has been shown that even with incomplete or fragmented ground data snowmelt runoff simulations can be carried out with adequate accuracy.
