1. Introduction Snow plays an important role in the hydrologic regime of mountainous catchments. In Mediterranean regions, significant variability in both meteorological variables and topographic features can be found ( Diodato and Bellocchi 2007 ). This adds complexity to the task of monitoring and modeling the evolution of snow distribution, which determines the infiltration–runoff regime and the availability of water during the dry season. Initially, a first approach to studying snowpack

reaching ~40°C) whereas winters are cold and wet (minimum temperature may go down to about −20°C). While the southwestern upstream part shows a warmer and wetter Mediterranean character, the rest of the basin has a drier, continental climate, isolated from the moderating effect of the Mediterranean Sea by the Taurus Mountains in the south. The land cover in the basin shows a strong contrast between intensively irrigated agricultural lands and the sparsely vegetated steppe areas covering the mid- and
