The Snow Science Winter School aims to teach modern techniques of snow measurements, based on a field training and theoretical lessons. It includes the practice with some of the state-of-the-art snow measurement techniques (specific surface area by reflection and spectroscopy, near-infrared photography, high-resolution penetrometry, micro-tomography, etc). Students will learn about how to characterize the snow cover, what are the fundamental processes responsible for its evolution, and how does it interacts with the environment. For the 2020 edition, a special focus will be on snow in a changing climate, impact on human and nature.

Any graduate student or post-doc working on snow or in some snow related fieldis welcome to participate. The course corresponds to 3 ETCS-Points.

Application will close on October, 20th, 2019.
