Part of: Water for Resource Development


Remote sensing is changing the approach in snowmelt runoff modelling. Instead of a simulated snow cover, the areal extent of the real snow cover can be periodically evaluated. Adaptation of depletion curves of the snow coverage for real time forecasts is outlined.
