Hydrological Atlas of Switzerland – Plate 6.5

Knowledge of the characteristics of the elements that make up the water cycle (precipitation, runoff, evaporation and changes in the volume of water retained) in medium-sized catchments that are not affected by anthropological factors is extremely important, since their water balance is a direct reflection of the climatic conditions and thus clear indicator of any possible changes in these conditions.
