Abstract

Large-scale (1:10 000) vegetation mapping was used to obtain estimates of the hydrological properties and dynamics in catchment areas that supply water to Vienna, Austria. GIS was used to manipulate data for the vegetational mapping. Soil properties were assumed to be homogeneous for each vegetation unit in the alpine and upper subalpine zones and were surveyed and mapped in forested areas. Evapotranspiration was estimated from a survey of literature. Water balance properties were modeled for environmental changes (forestry, pasturing, and climate warming) to determine the impacts on the water supply of Vienna. - (SLD)
