Calling citizen scientists: Cascade snow survey

Susan Dickerson-Lange (WWU alum) is working toward a PhD at the University of Washington involving snow hydrology and would like your help. Read below.

_____________________________________

Are you planning any mountain adventures this spring and summer?  We are looking for help from outdoor enthusiasts to collect snow observations as the snowpack melts across the Pacific Northwest.

We need on-the-ground observations of snow presence in forested and open areas, and are looking for hikers, skiers, snowmobilers, and mountaineers to contribute.

Simply take geotagged photos of snow (or no snow) in adjacent forested and open areas and send them to:

uwsnowresearch@gmail.com

…or submit written observations via an online or paper form.

For information, including about geotagging, and a short training video:

http://depts.washington.edu/mtnhydr/research/citsci.shtml

Please spread the word, and contact me if you have any questions or ideas!

thanks,

Susan
