A one-dimensional mathematical model is used to simulate the process of snow-melt infiltration in unsaturated frozen silt. Hydraulic and thermal parameters are mainly based on data given in the literature.

Field observations in a watershed (of area 1.8 km2) are compared with simulated data and consequences on snow melt run-off are discussed.
