|2016-04-19 11:00||Discussion||All||WG topics: snow models, questionnaires, case studies, zero-snow from SYNOP, Snow issues in climate simulations|
- Questionnaires: Stay along with the questionnaires from WG1 and WG2. Need contact point and more feedback from Asia. More comprehensive evaluation in Q4 2016.
- Exchange of national snow observation data: Prepare statement paper from COST. Link with GCW Snow watch. Asia should be included. Sensitivity study from P. de Rosnay on the impact of additional snow obs.
- Contact EUMETNET for forcing zero snow depth reports (EUMETNET representative at DWD was informed)
- Review of snow models: Consider IAHS Working Group on Education in the Hydrological Sciences and Task 3.1 (http://www.harmosnow.eu/index.php?page=Working%20Group%203). Classes of snow models used in WG3 as starting point.
- Model intercomparison: verify participation in Earth System Model-Snow Model Intercomparison Project (ESM-SnowMIP).
- Snow in hydrological models: Provide a model overview in WG3. Common terminology according to Beven and Young (2013).
- Consider the impact of snow in long-term simulations: Link to EuroCORDEX comparisons. Uncertainties in alpine region could be related at least in parts to snow.
