Description

Snow cover affects regional climate, hydrological processes, ecosystem services, and human activities; therefore, understanding the spatiotemporal heterogeneity in snow cover properties is paramount to determine potential adverse impacts to the socio-economic and environmental futures of landscapes with significant seasonal snow cover. However, our ability to accurately capture reliable remotely sensed snow cover properties including snow water equivalent, depth, and extent, is limited. To overcome these limitations, missions combining novel airborne sensors and in-situ measurements have begun to implement multi-source and multi-scale techniques to improve the retrieval of snow cover properties. We welcome submissions on a range of snow related topics including: the combination of multi-scale observations and modeling; improved snow retrievals and assembly of consistent snow data records from global satellite observations, airborne and ground measurements; new developments from next generation airborne and satellite sensors; experimental campaigns to improve the remote sensing of snow and results from recent campaigns.

If you are interested in presenting in this oral session, please email an abstract (200 word limit) and PIN to Caleb Pan, caleb.pan@umontana.edu, by October 25.
