And consequently decision-support tools?
Of course. The new paradigm is the question of the “right snow”. We need to produce what we need and not more, at the right time and under the right conditions. More and more researchers and engineers working on short-, medium- and long-term forecasting tools attend our forum. A presentation was given at our latest edition, for example, on software to predict water usage in the Belleville valley which aggregates data to assess the different water needs based on instream flow. We also had access to the initial results of the European PROSNOW project that aims to optimise snow management at ski areas.
