- ... The assessment of the spatial and temporal distribution of water resources in Mediterranean region is crucial for the better management of available resources. In Lebanon in particular, the snow is a crucial parameter for water supply. However, few research works were performed until now to study this potential resource because of difficulties inherent to the measurement of the water volume stored ...

- ... In Lebanon, due to the lack of in situ measurements, it is difficult to estimate the amount of water stored in this high altitude snow pack of Mount Liban, or to predict when it will be available. This is a case where remote sensing can help hydrological modelling. For example, snow water equivalent (SWE) information derived from RADARSAT-1 images could be used to regularly update model simulation ...
