The 6th Snow Science Winter School will teach modern techniques of snow measurements. The school consists of a field training complemented by theoretical lessons. It includes the 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 snow cover, what are the fundamental processes responsible for its evolution, and how does it interacts with the environment. For this edition, a special focus will be on snow in a changing climate, impact on human and nature.

The target audience is any graduate or post doc working on snow or in a snow related fields, this includes everyone interested in cryospheric sciences. This year those with an interest on climate change and impacts on humans and nature are especially encouraged to apply. 

The deadline to apply is October 20th, 2019

The Snow Science Winter Schools are joint project of the Finnish Meteorological Institute, the Swiss Federal Institute for Forest, Snow and Landscape Research WSL, and Météo-France-CNRS-CNRM.
