Abstract
Snow cover is a frequent phenomenon in Slovenia and even in the lowlands of the interior regions, it can last for several weeks. The properties of snow and winter weather after the snow cover has formed, determine the load of snow upon houses, trees and other objects. Water accumulation of snow cover (WASC) gives us the amount of water in snow and therefore also the weight of snow. Deep snow cover can soak its own melting water from the surface, so WASC does not decrease as fast as one would conclude from the intensity of melting. WASC is also a good indicator of winter precipitation where precipitation stations are rare and precipitation gradients are big. The researches carried out in the winter 2005/2006 showed that precipitation in the central part of the Bohinj ridge in the Slovenian Julian Alps, was about 50% higher than at its northern edge, where the meteorological station Vogel is located.

Title:Pomen meritev vodnatosti snežne odeje v slovenskih gorskih pokrajinah
Abstract:
Snežna odeja je v Sloveniji pogost pojav, ki lahko po nižinah leži tudi več mesecev. Od vrste snega in kasnejšega razvoja vremena je odvisno, kakšne obremenitve na infrastrukturo predstavlja snežna odeja. Vodnatost snežne odeje pove količino vode v snežni odeji, s tem pa tudi težo snežne obtežbe. Debelejša snežna odeja je sposobna vpijati lastno snežnico in deževnico, kar pomeni, da kljub taljenju vodnatost snežne odeje ne pada tako hitro, kot bi sklepali sodeč samo po taljenju. Vodnatost snega je tudi dober pokazatelj količine padavin, kar je uporabno zlasti v gorskem svetu, kjer padavinskih postaj ni (ali pa so postavljene redko in neenakomerno), padavinski gradienti pa so veliki. V zimi 2005/2006 smo s pomočjo vodnatosti snežne odeje prišli do zaključka, da je bila količina padavin na osrednjem delu Bohinjskega grebena Julijskih Alp okoli 40 % višja kot na njegovem severnem robu, kjer sicer stoji meteorološka postaja Vogel.
