KeywordsSnow melt and runoff

The relation between snow survey data and runoff from small watersheds is difficult to assess especially where part of the watershed is in the rainfall altitudes. Very frequent measurements of snow courses are necessary together with rain gage measurements and other meteorological and soil moisture data is required to fill in the desired information necessary when working with small watersheds. No information is given as to the size of the so called small watershed, or what altitudes are involved.
