The thematic issue attempts to attract scientific contributions featuring current state of methods of snow cover measurements, evaluation of the amount and variability of water stored in snow, its release during the snowmelt and the links between the snow cover and hydrological processes, e.g. soil and groundwater recharge, river runoff, etc.

Manuscripts with following focus are especially welcomed:

- innovative methods of snow characteristics measurements

- relationships between snow and runoff, snowmelt impacts on high and low-flows

- monitoring and evaluation of environmental tracers in the snow-related part of the hydrological cycle (precipitation, snowpack, soil moisture, groundwater, runoff)

- snow accumulation and melt modelling evaluated against environmental tracers, snow and runoff observations

- transnational studies
