Description :
In this paper, investigations are conducted to characterize the snowmelt erosion events in the 1.44 km2 Schäfertal research catchment that is located c. 150km southwest of Berlin. Two runoff events of different initial conditions are compared and analysed. Although the net erosion rate in the catchment is relatively low, the described event with soil frost is considerably different from the event without soil frost. A model approach, WaSim, to simulate the runoff generation in the catchment during soil frost conditions, which is passively coupled to an erosion model, AGNPS, is presented.
