1. Introduction Calibration and validation of continuous distributed energy water balance models is a challenging task in hydrology and at the same time a complex issue owing to the difficulties related to the definition of which variables are representative of the single process and how reliable they are ( Beven and Binley 1992 ; Refsgaard 1997 ; Rabuffetti et al. 2008 ; Brath et al. 2004 ). In flood and water balance simulations, the exact representation of the surface boundary conditions

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
