Getting ready for the snow melt

Currently the HOAL is still covered by a snow layer of 10cm or partly even more. In the next days warmer temperatures are predicted so we expect the melt of the snow and a rise of the discharge at the stream or even slight overland flow on the fields.

Therefore Matthias Oismüller and Markus Oismüller were in the field today to get all H-flumes, where the different discharges at the tributaries and stream are measured, ready for this observations. Since there were deep temperatures in the last weeks the stations partly got frozen and got ready now for the next events.
