Bulgaria to Have Less Snow in 20-50 Years – Scientist

Environment | July 3, 2012, Tuesday // 18:22|  views

Bulgaria's National Meteorology and Hydrology Institute has developed a climate change model that forecasts less and less snow in the Bulgarian mountains the next 20-50 years.

The model was announced by Prof. Dr. Georgi Korchev, director of the Institute, in the Danube city of Ruse on Tuesday.

"This means that there will be little snow at the end of the winter turning into water, and we must be really careful about managing the nation's water resources," Korchev said, as cited by the Bulgarian state news agency BTA.

He said the authorities are now looking more thoroughly into trans-border water resources, and that Bulgaria and Romania are going to implement a joint project for water monitoring that will encompass the rivers in Northern Bulgaria.

"We will try to see which spots lack observation so that we can have better coverage and information about these rivers," explained the scientist.
