SRM-ETH User's Manual

The SRM-ETH User's Manual describes the operation of the SRM Data Acquisition and Management System implemented at the Fachgruppe Bildwissenschaft.

The aim of the system is to support runoff simulations and forecasts in an operational manner. The kernel of the menu system is a Relational Data Base Management System (RDBMS) which integrates the results of the snow cover mappings and the online collection of meteorological data such as temperature and precipitation inputs which are supplied as measured and forecasted values by the Swiss Meteorological Services.

An additional link to a Geographic Information System (GIS) has been installed to allow easy data access related to different regions for comparative studies. The GIS incorporates a powerful visualization tool for input data and results.
