Abstract

The main purpose of our considerations is to indicate the essential criteria for the estimation of snow conditions by means of a statistical and cartograph-ical approach, which enable the elaboration of a nival-evaluation map. The defining of the correlative dependence between some (basic) characteristics of the snow cover and the height a.s.l., latitude and longitude, and the illustration of these dependencies in a graphic way or in the form of function, will enable the easy and fast calculation of the mean values of these characteristics for randomly selected locality in south-eastern Poland.
