Vast regions of the northern hemisphere are exposed to snowfall and seasonal frost. This has large effects on spatiotemporal distribution of infiltration and groundwater recharge processes as well as on the fate of pollutants. Therefore, snow and frost need to be central inherent elements of risk assessment and management schemes. However, snow and frost are often neglected or treated summarily or in a simplistic way by groundwater modelers. Snow deposition is uneven, and the snow is likely to sublimate, be redistributed, and partly melt during the winter influencing the mass and spatial distribution of snow storage available for infiltration, the presence of ice layers within and under the snowpack and, therefore, also the spatial distribution of depths and permeability of the soil frost. In steep terrain snowmelt may travel downhill tens of meters in hours along snow layers. The permeability of frozen soil is mainly influenced by soil type, its water and organic matter content, and the timing of the first snow in relation to the timing of sub-zero temperatures. The aim with this paper is to review the literature on snow and frost processes, modeling approaches with the purpose to visualize and emphasize the need to include these processes when modeling, managing and predicting groundwater recharge for areas exposed to seasonal snow and frost.
