Abstract

Average water equivalents of the seasonal snow cover are evaluated from periodic snow cover monitoring by remote sensing satellites for 9 regions and 5 elevation zones of the Alpine basin Felsberg (3250 km2, 560-3614 m a.s.l.). Regional trends in snow accumulation are illustrated and the representativeness of point measurements is assessed. The method can also be applied to simulate the snow accumulation in ungauged areas and in a future changed climate.
