Abstract

The study of snow regimen characteristics, conducted in accordance with the European standard for snow load ENV 1991-2-3:1995 and in keeping with meteorological practice, is described. Typical snow load, i.e. load that can be expected once in 50 years, was defined on the basis of information on the water content in snow and on the height of snow cover. Four snow-related climatic zones in Croatia were determined based on analyses of changes registered at various altitudes.

Keywords
