Snow hydrology has been a relatively less investigated part of the hydrologic cycle. In the last two decades there has been a growing interest and scientific research to study the role of melting snow fbr the estimation of runoff mainly contributing to the storage in large reservoirs and to make the procedure operational on a real time basis. The paper describes a project related to satellite snow cover mapping and snowmelt runoff computations, which is currently carried out in eastern Turkey.
