WHAT'S IN YOUR SNOWPACK?  SNOW, WATER AND THE POWER OF CITIZEN SCIENCE

David Hill, Professor, School of Civil and Construction Engineering, OSU College of Engineering; Co-Leader, Community Snow Observations + YOU

In the Pacific Northwest and other mountain environments, snow is an essential part of our water resources. The mountain snowpack stores and slowly releases water to downstream locations each spring. Stream ecology, agriculture and humans all benefit. Understanding the distribution and evolution of our snowpack is critical, but between cold temperatures, short daylight, and hard-to-get to locations, measuring it can difficult. Come learn how experts observe, record and study snow, and how they predict snow and ice melt. You'll also learn how citizen scientists enhance scientists' knowledge by crowdsourcing snow depth information.
