Vulnerabilities Slovakia

The occurrence of snow and snow cover will not be endangered by the projected 4°C temperature increase by the end of this century at the altitude over 1200 m. Peak snow cover (new snow cover and total snow cover) can be expected more often. The risk of avalanches will certainly increase in Slovakia (1).
