Hydrological Atlas of Switzerland

Hydrological Atlas of Switzerland – Plate 3.2

Map 3.2 consists of three individual parts on the subject of snow. Their point in common is the depiction of extreme conditions: depths of snow with a 100-year return period, maximum observed water equivalents, as well as depths of snowfall resulting from extreme events. It is these extreme events that influence and shape life in the alpine regions.
