Mountain snow cover and glaciers contribute considerably to streamflow in many parts of the world, and modify runoff in terms of quantity, timing and variability. Their role is emphasized in the light of globally increasing freshwater demand and the potential impacts of future climate change. The effect of snow and ice on runoff varies between different climatic regions. While in mid and high-latitude areas seasonal snow cover exerts a strong control on runoff variations, in low-latitudes glaciers provide the most dominant source of water during the dry season.
