The 4th Winter Field Course for Snow Measurement is a course for serious students of snow, whether engaged in modeling, measuring, or teaching about snow. The course will introduce students to standard and specialized quantitative and qualitative measurements of snowpack characteristics, as well as how to conduct safe and efficient snow field campaigns. Over three full days we will provide fundamental training to students in performing and analyzing snow measurements, including depth, density, snow water equivalence, grain size and shape, stratigraphy, temperature and hardness.
