C027:
Recent Advances in Monitoring, Measuring, and Modeling Snow Processes





Session ID#: 22643

Session Description:
The storage and modulated release of water from seasonal snowcover are major components of hydrologic systems in many parts of the world, particularly in mountainous and boreal areas. In these regions, the seasonal snowcover is a critical component of the annual water cycle, controlling soil moisture, soil temperature, streamflow, and the development and stability of terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems. Because snow-dominated regions will be affected by climatic warming in the near future, we must advance our understanding of these systems. The session will focus on snowcover physical properties, patterns and dynamics, scaling, remote sensing, and developing measurement techniques.
