Description

Snow Water Equivalent: it is a measure of the amount of water contained in snow pack. It can be considered as the depth of water that would theoretically result if the whole snow pack instantaneously melts. SWE is the product of snow depth and snow density.

Description

This dataset represents the annually accumulated snow water equivalent (in mm/year) calculated for the LTER site Z�belboden, Pilot study 1 of the OrientGate project. Future climate projections were derived for the IPCC B1-scenario (GCM ECHAM5) for three time slices: 2025-2035, 2045-2055 and 2085-2095. We used downscaling scenarios for Austria reclip:century (http://reclip.ait.ac.at/reclip_century/) together with the weather generator ClimGen (St�ckle et al. 1999). The latter was calibrated with meteorological data measured at the site. Three forest management options were defined with help of the local forest managers: Continuous forest cover spruce-beech management with natural regeneration, shelterwood-cut management with spruce and natural regeneration, and clear-cut management with spruce and planting after clear-cut
