Comparison of geostatistical approaches dealing with the distribution of snow

, : Comparison of geostatistical approaches dealing with the distribution of snow. Central European Journal of Geosciences 4(4): 603-613

This paper deals with a stochastic simulation. Snow cover, representing a regionalized variable, was studied and used as an input parameter for a stochastic simulation. The first step included basic statistical analysis of individual parameters of snow, e.g. snow height. In the next step, an analysis of relationships between the snow and the geomorphological parameters (altitude, slope and aspect) was conducted. The most current methods of spatial interpolation and multifactor evaluation are based on weighted regression relationships. Primarily, the use of conditional stochastic simulation was tested in a variety of software. The main aim of this investigation is to compare selected interpolation methods with stochastic simulation, based on the development of the values and on the evaluation of the incidence of extreme events. The study shall provide users with recommendations for selecting the optimal interpolation method and its application to real data.
