Abstract : The paper presents a method of calculating Snow depth by using Landsat imagery and such hydrometeorological data as may be available in a mountainous basin. Only one point data has been used. It is thus possible to get an estimate of snowmelt portion of runoff, that would be available. This forecast can be done on the day the snowmelt season starts and can be corrected and updated on subsequent days.
