Remote Sensing and Hydrology of Snow Cover in Mountain Area

Published 27 May, 2024

Snow constitutes a crucial component of the cryosphere and plays a significant role in the environment its  sustainable development. In the aspect of alpine environment, three primary techniques, namely in situ observations, remote sensing and hydrological modeling are often used for studies. To expand the research horizons of young scientists in these fields, track emerging trends, and promote interdisciplinary integration and innovation, a special column with the theme "Frontier and Innovative Achievements in Alpine Snow Research" is established.

Topics covered:

This special issue covers, but is not limited to, the following topics:

  1. In situ observations in alpine snow
  2. Spatiotemporal variation of snow cover and its climatic response
  3. Estimation of snow parameters using remote sensing technique
  4. Identification of snow cover distribution in mountainous areas and mapping
  5. Data fusion technology of snow cover
  6. Climate change and hydrological simulation of snow cover in watershed
  7. Snow disaster monitoring in mountainous areas
  8. Interaction between snow cover and ecological environment
  9. New developments and applications of mountain snow monitoring
