Abstract

The paper presents the results of analysis of temporal and spatial changes of snow water equivalent (SWE) in the mountain basin of the upper Hron River over 40 hydrological years. Spatial distribution of SWE was simulated with the WaSiM model. Measured as well as simulated data indicated despite large temporal variations of SWE, the period since the mid-1980-ties seems to have less snow than the previous decades. Simulations indicated pronounced decrease of SWE in the southern part of the basin. Changes of SWE in the highest mountains were not so pronounced. The analysis of previous decades is considered to be the first step in the assessment of impacts of expected climate changes in the future.
