ABSTRACT
The article analyzes the methods and results of distributed modeling of snowmelt processes on the Votkinskoe reservoir catchment area. The model is based on GIS technologies. For evaluation of the snowmelt intensity, the authors have used the empirical method of calculation of snow cover energy balance, was proposed by P.P. Kuzmin. The validation of simulation results is made according to snow survey data and remote sensing data.

Keywords: snow cover, snowmelt, snow water equivalent, GIS-based modeling, remote sensing data
