Hydrological Implications of Covering Wind-Blown Snow Accumulations with Geotextiles on Mount Aragats, Armenia

Nestler, Alexander ; Huss, Matthias ; Ambartzumian, Rouben ; Hambarian, Artak

In: Geosciences, 2014, vol. 4, no. 3, p. 73–92

Snow is an excellent water reservoir, naturally storing large quantities of water at time scales from a few days to several months. In summer-dry countries, like Armenia, runoff due to snow melt from mountain regions is highly important for a sustained water supply (irrigation, hydropower). Snow fields on Mount Aragats, Armenia’s highest peak, often persist until July, providing vital amounts...

Mountain climates and climatic change: an overview of processes focusing on the european Alps

Beniston, Martin

In: Pure and Applied Geophysics, 2005, vol. 162(8-9), p. 1587

This contribution provides an overview of the intricacies of mountain climates, particularly as they pertain to the European Alps. Examples will be given of issues that are related to climatic change as observed in the Alps during the course of the 20th century, and some of the physical mechanisms that may be responsible for those changes. The discussion will then focus on the problems related to...
