Snow has a profound and rapidly varying influence on the surface energy and water budgets of regions with seasonal snow cover. Models of snow processes are required for a wide range of applications in hydrological forecasting, avalanche risk forecasting, ecological risk assessment and climate prediction. Field and laboratory studies are required to provide data for developing and evaluating these models. Heterogeneity and vegetation canopies in complex landscapes present particular challenges for modelling and process studies.
Contributions are invited on all topics of modelling processes in seasonal snow packs, field and laboratory process studies, and comparisons between models and observations. Special attention will be placed on the problem of scale which can vary between microscopic (metamorphism) and continental (climate processes).
