C022:
Modeling of the Cryosphere: Seasonal Snow





Session ID#: 25023

Session Description:
The seasonal snow cover has manifold impacts and feedbacks affecting water availability, vegetation patterns, ecosystems, and weather. As environmental changes advance, seasonal snow regimes are undergoing rapid and abrupt changes. Accurately modeling current and future snow covers is challenged by the need for modeling techniques that represent the involved complex and interacting processes. This session will bring together researchers working on developing and applying snow models at varying spatial scales that collectively advance our understanding of system functionality. We solicit contributions related to modelling seasonal snow in general, and particularly welcome abstracts on snow cover interaction with the atmosphere, vegetation, and soil, operational snow models, data assimilation, subgrid schemes in coarse-scale applications, model evaluation and validation, and sensitivities to model parameters and forcing data.
