In order to investigate hydrological behavior of the east coast snowfall in February 2014, this study analyzed the changes of the hydrological components due to the snowmelt in the Ssangcheon watershed nearby Sokcho city. The temporal changes of hydrological components through snowfall and snowmelt processes were simulated using SWAT-MODFLOW. As a result of the analysis, snow accumulated until February is fully melted from the late March, 2014, and the stream discharge of April is more than doubled compared to the case of not considering snowmelt. The soil moisture also increased by up to 21 % due to the melting and the groundwater level rose by about 40 cm until the end of April. Thus, the heavy snowfall in February 2014 is considered to play an important role in securing water resources in this region.
