We are happy to announce that registration for the 6th Snow Science Winter School is now open.
It will take place on 16-22 February 2020, at Col du Lautaret, French Alps.
The Snow Science Winter School aims to teach modern techniques of snow measurements, based on a field training and theoretical lessons. It includes practice with some of the state-of-the-art snow measurement techniques (specific surface area by reflection and spectroscopy, near-infrared photography, high-resolution penetrometry, micro-tomography, etc).
Students will learn about how to characterize the snow cover, what are the fundamental processes responsible for its evolution, and how it interacts with the environment. For the 2020 edition, a special focus will be on snow in a changing climate, impact on human and nature.
Any graduate student or post-doc working on snow or in some snow related field is welcome to participate.
The course corresponds to 3 ETCS-Points.
Applications will close on October, 20th, 2019.
