Additional Information (notes, web addresses, etc.)
The Izas experimental catchment has an area of approximately 55 ha and is located in the central Spanish Pyrenees (42°44' N, 0°25' W) between 2056 and 2311 m above sea level (asl). This area is close to the main divide of the Pyrenees in the headwaters of the Gállego River, near the border with France. The catchment is exposed to Atlantic climate conditions, and consequently the winters are relatively humid, and the snowpack covers most of the catchment from November to the end of May.
