IASC Workshop: Cutting Barriers in Snow Knowledge

Event Type:
Conferences and Workshops
When: 
8 April 2018
Where: 
Vienna, Austria

Venue: Department of Social and Cultural Anthropology, Neues Institutsgebäude (NIG), 4th floor, Universitätsstraße 7, 1010 Vienna.

Snow is a key element of the arctic regions. Most projects of all IASC working groups are directly or indirectly affected by snow. The overarching goal of this cross-cutting IASC initiative("task force") is to establish an improved common knowledge on snow related processes by linking snow-interested specialists in the different fields by different means. A second goal is to establish a snow measuring network at INTERACT-stations, especially for non-standard snow properties (stratigraphy).

Topics to discuss:
- How to improve methods and standardized protocols to measure snowpack physical and chemical properties.
- Implementation of a comprehensive program of measurement of key snowpack properties ( physical and chemical) at INTERACT stations, as well as to super sites (CryoNet) and IASOA-stations.
- Coordination with T-MOSAIC.

Please register by 31st of March!
