Modelling changes in grassland hydrological cycling along an elevational gradient in the Alps
The effects of elevation on surface water fluxes in dry alpine grassland ecosystems were investigated along an elevational transect between 1000 and 2000m above sea level established in the Vinschgau/Venosta valley, a ...
Down to future: Transplanted mountain meadows react with increasing phytomass or shifting species composition
Manipulative approaches under natural conditions are fundamental for understanding impacts of climate warming on grassland (agro-) ecosystems. In this paper we present 3 years of data from two simultaneously conducted ...
Advancing Precipitation Estimation and Streamflow Simulations in Complex Terrain with X-Band Dual-Polarization Radar Observations
In mountain basins, the use of long-range operational weather radars is often associated with poor quantitative precipitation estimation due to a number of challenges posed by the complexity of terrain. As a result, the ...
A simple method to combine snow height and meteorological observations to estimate winter precipitation at sub-daily resolution
Measuring winter solid and liquid precipitation with high temporal resolution in remote or higher elevation regions is a challenging task because of undercatch and power supply issues. However, the number of micro-meteorological ...
Topographical and ecohydrological controls on land surface temperature in an alpine catchment
In mountain areas, land surface temperature (LST) is a key parameter in the surface energy budget and is controlled by a complex interplay of topography, incoming radiation and atmospheric processes, as well as soil moisture ...
