Abstract

Snow cover mapping is a prerequisite to deriving the main input variable for a deterministic snowmelt runoff model (SRM). Operational forecasting of snowmelt runoff has to rely on guaranteed snow cover information for an area and time of interest. Remote sensing can provide the necessary data especially if different sensor systems are available for combined interpretations. It is shown how remote sensing information from Landsat-MSS and NOAA/AVHRR supplement each other. When using coarse spatial sensor resolution, special attention to the area, topography, and amount of snow coverage must be taken.
