The purpose of this paper is to show a feasible method for processing satellite images and a runoff simulation by the SRM model based on these data. Two problems had to be dealt with:‹1. the morphological and the climatological complexity of basins in the Swiss Alps,‹2. the requirement of at least 4 snow cover evaluations during the snowmelt period, which necessitates the use of incomplete satellite scenes. The changing areal extent of seasonal snow cover is a very important variable for the Snowmelt-Runoff Model (SRM). The runoff simulation for the snowmelt season 1982 was carried out in the alpine basin Rhine-Felsberg (3249 km2, 571-3614 m a.s.l.).
