High resolution monitoring and modelling under climate change conditions (hiSNOW)


The focus of this project is the quantification of uncertainties in snow and ice melt contribution to runoff for at different defined spatial and temporal scales of modelling. The project is led from the Institute of Geography and involves members of ACINN and EURAC. The research involves the application and evaluation of glaciological and geodetic methods of determining glacier mass balance and runoff from snowmelt at a range of temporal scales applied to the Hochjochferner/Val Senales region.
