(OCoLC) Abstract Redistribution of snow by avalanches in the Caucasus is of great significance in the nourishment of glaciers and the runoff, since, in general, the thickness and density of avalanche banks are considerably greater than the normal snow cover and reaches a volume of million cubic metres.

At the higher altitudes of the Greater Caucasus snow cover is year-round. There are about glaciers in the Caucasus, covering an area of km 2 [Shahgedanova et.

At the northern macroslope, it passes at the level of 2, 3, in. The height of snow cover in the mountains is highly intermittent. The snow cover thickness at the flattened areas of the mountains constitutes m.

The recent development of high-resolution climate models offers a promising approach in improving the simulation of precipitation, clouds and temperature. However, higher grid spacing is also a promising feature to improve the simulation of snow cover.

In particular, it provides a refined representation of topography and allows for an explicit simulation of convective precipitation processes. The average winter snow cover of the Lesser Caucasus Mountains ranges from 10 to 30 cm (– in). The Greater Caucasus Mountains (especially the southwestern slopes) are marked by heavy snowfall.
