Multisensor Snow Cover Mapping and Snowmelt Runoff Simulations

Abstract

Runoff forecasting represents an essential tool for optimum utilization of the water power in the Alps. In Switzerland for example, 60% of the electricity is produced by hydropower. Usually, reservoirs are designed for limited capacity and for mean peak flows. The time and the amount of the expected meltwater have to be known precisely. Inefficient reservoir manipulation means wasting a part of the available water and causing economical losses. Precise snowmelt runoff forecasting can help prevent such situations and are therefore of special economic meaning.
