Abstract
For reliable water balance and flood forecast modeling in snow influenced runoff regimes, frequent observations of the snow cover from operational (fully-automatic) remote sensing methods are essential. Within this paper the developed methods and obtained results from operational multisensoral remote sensing of snow will be presented and discussed. For operational processing of directly receipted NOAA and near-real-time available ENVISAT data, processing methodologies and software were enhanced to obtain stable and reliable results from heterogeneous image geometries. The joined analysis of ASAR WSM and AVHRR datasets allow the independent determination of snow parameters covering the entire area of the investigated catchments in Southern Germany with sufficient spatial and good temporal resolution.
