Snow plays an important part in the hydrology of high latitude and mountainous areas. In Norway about 30% of the annual precipitation falls as snow. Therefore it is important to properly quantify the seasonal snow cover in Norway. In this study a method to calculate regional snow-line elevations (RSLE) was evaluated in 70 catchments in Norway to see if the method is a viable option in the difficult conditions faced in Norway and if so can the results be used to study melt behavior in those same… CONTINUE READING
