Estimating the snow water equivalent from snow depth measurements in the Swiss Alps
The snow water equivalent (SWE) characterizes the hydrological significance of snow cover. However, measuring SWE is time-consuming, thus alternative methods of determining SWE may be useful. SWE canExpand

Monitoring strategies for re-establishment of ecological reference conditions: possibilities and limitations.
The ecological status of an environment should be evaluated by comparison with local "reference conditions", here defined as the pre-industrial ecological status of the 19th century. This pilot studyExpand

seNorge2 daily precipitation, an observational gridded dataset over Norway from 1957 to the present day
Abstract. The conventional climate gridded datasets based on observations only are widely used in atmospheric sciences; our focus in this paper is on climate and hydrology. On the Norwegian mainland,Expand

Chemical and Biological Gradients along the Damma Glacier Soil Chronosequence, Switzerland
Soils are the product of a complex suite of chemical, biological, and physical processes. In spite of the importance of soils for society and for sustaining life on earth, our knowledge of soilExpand

Melt water driven stream and groundwater stage fluctuations on a glacier forefield (Dammagletscher, Switzerland)
In many mountain regions, large land areas with heterogeneous soils have become ice-free with the ongoing glacier retreat. On these recently formed proglacial fields, the melt of the remainingExpand

Quantitative evaluation of different hydrological modelling approaches in a partly glacierized Swiss watershed
Mountain water resources management often requires hydrological models that need to handle both snow and ice melt. In this study, we compared two different model types for a partly glacierizedExpand

Improving physically based snow simulations by assimilating snow depths using the particle filter
Data assimilation can help to ensure that model results remain close to observations despite potential errors in the model, parameters and inputs. In this study, we test whether assimilation of snowExpand

A new age of old age?: Gerotranscendence and the re-enchantment of aging
Abstract Gerotranscendence theory is reviewed regarding its content, development, diffusion, impact, empirical results, and ontology. Gerotranscendence theory describes a “natural” alteration ofExpand

Evaluating snow models with varying process representations for hydrological applications
Much effort has been invested in developing snow models over several decades, resulting in a wide variety of empirical and physically based snow models. For the most part, these models are built onExpand

Hydrological control of stream water chemistry in a glacial catchment (Damma Glacier, Switzerland)
Abstract The temporal and spatial controls of stream water chemistry in a small, granitic, glacial catchment were investigated in conjunction with high-resolution hydrological and meteorologicalExpand
