High-mountain precipitation is a key variable for simulating glacier runoff in High-Mountain Asia but is poorly known and difficult to measure directly. This project combines in-situ data with glacier mass balance and hydrological models in order to reconstruct high-mountain precipitation in High-Mountain Asia, investigating the quantity, seasonality and variability of precipitation in selected catchments, and determining the mechanisms that cause or modify these characteristics.
