From the Back Cover
In recent years, global warming has come to the forefront of research into climate change and part of the investigations involve the impact of alterations in snow hydrology. New advances in technology, especially that of remote sensing, mean that it is now possible to predict future changes of snow coverage and snow melt (RSRM) runoff and their impact on our environment.
Remote Sensing in Snow Hydrology is the result of 30 years' cooperation between the disciplines of remote sensing and snow hydrology. The book
. provides an assessmant of the role of snow and ice in the global water balance
. discusses different methods of snow measurement and the analysis of statistics to
evaluate the average return period of extreme conditions
. shows by mathematical modelling how future snow-melt runoff can be computed
. lists the applications of SRM in excess of 100 basins worldwide.
