The in-situ snow broadband albedo is automatically measured in many stations that monitor the surface radiation budget, and is used (a) to test snow albedo parameterizations, (b) to validate remote sensing snow albedo products, (c) as input parameter for snow, hydrological, and atmospheric models, and (d) for climate studies.

Coastal systems in transition: From a 'natural' to an 'anthropogenically-modified' state
When: 
Sun, 09/04/2016 to Wed, 09/07/2016
Where: 
Bremen, Germany

Welcome to ECSA’s next major symposium, ECSA 56 – Coastal systems in transition from a ‘natural’ to an ‘anthropogenically modified’ state.

Humans are drivers of and affected by global change. Human-induced global climate and regional environmental change dramatically modify the structures and functions of coastal systems driving them into a new system state. The altered resource potentials and ecosystem services then, in turn, significantly affect the livelihoods of the population.

When: 
Wed, 09/07/2016 to Thu, 09/08/2016
