Abstract

Snow load is defined as a product of snow density, snow depth and gravitational acceleration. It is an important climatic element that is, together with minimum and maximum temperatures and wind load, a part of the national annex for the application of standards for the design of structures. In particular, the characteristic snow load, defined as the maximum snow load at the ground for the 50-year return period, has to be estimated and a map has to be supplied as a part of national annex. The method for the estimation of the characteristic snow load at the station locations is presented, followed by the geostatistical mapping procedure for estimating this parameter for the whole Croatian territory.
