Abstract:
This paper presents methods to combine satellite-based estimation of snow cover characteristics with hydrological modeling for Austrian catchments and discusses their pros and cons for water resources applications. Based on case studies the paper illustrates that the remote sensing methods can significantly improve the estimates of catchment snow packs as compared to traditional point measurements, when combined with hydrological simulations.
