Snow Monitoring Books

  • Principles of Snow Hydrology

    Principles of Snow Hydrology describes the factors that control the accumulation, melting and runoff of water from seasonal snowpacks over the surface of the earth. The book addresses not only the basic principles governing snow in the hydrologic cycle, but also the latest applications of remote sensing, and techniques for modeling streamflow from ...

  • Snow and Climate: Physical Processes, Surface Energy Exchange and Modeling

    The extent and variability of seasonal snow cover are important parameters in the climate system, due to their effects on energy and moisture budgets, and because surface temperature is highly dependent on snow cover. In turn, snow cover trends serve as key indicators of climate change. In the last two decades, many new techniques have become ...

  • Natural Physical Sources of Underwater Sound

    The generation of oceanic sound by natural physical mechanisms is a topic of scientific inquiry with a wide range of applications, both environmental and naval. Sound is generated by waves interacting, by waves breaking, by wind noise transmitted directly into, and by rain, snow and spray falling onto the water. Sound is also generated in ...

  • Remote Sensing in Snow Hydrology

    Initially, the role of snow and ice in the global water balance is assessed and methods of snow measurements are explained. Remote sensing is dealt with with regard to periodical snow cover mapping. Last advances and refinements refer to spatial resolution, cloud interference and separate monitoring of snow and glacier ice. Following a review of ...
