Following the development of rainfall-runoff models the attention of the international hydrologic program is now increasingly focused on the snowmelt-runoff. The present simple model is based on taking into account the variability of the degree-day factor, recession coefficient and snow coverage. It can be adapted to heterogenous conditions of snow accumulation and temperature in mountainous basins.
