First Tuesday on a Thursday: January 3: Citizen Scientists and Seasonal Snow Modeling with David Hill

OSU Environmental Engineering professor and co-leader of the NASA-funded Community Snow Observation Project, David Hill will share more about this ongoing project to better understand mountain snow distribution using citizen science and satellite remote sensing. Given how important snow is for fish, wildlife, recreation and human activity, it’s no surprise that scientists work hard to figure out just how much snow has landed on the ground. But even with sophisticated modeling programs and technological tools, citizen scientists can play a role and add to our understanding of snow. Come learn more about this fascinating project and, if you are interested, how you can get involved!
