ESSEM COST Action ES1404: A European network for a harmonised monitoring of snow for the benefit of climate change scenarios, hydrology and numerical weather prediction

Training Schools supported by COST Harmosnow Action

3rd Snow Science Winter School

Date and Place: 12-18 February 2017, Sodankylä, Finland

The 3rd Snow Science Winter School will teach advanced field techniques, (e.g. high-resolution penetrometry and casting of snow samples for micro-tomography), and relate these measurements to microwave and spectral albedo measurements. The site of the third Winter School, the FMI Arctic Research Centre, has a unique setup of ground-based microwave radiometers and optical spectrometers.

Any graduate student or post-doc working on snow or in some snow related field, this year especially in remote sensing of the cryosphere, is welcome ot participate. Those fields include everybody interested in cryospheric sciences.

The housing will be in Sodankylä with direct access to the field sites. The 3rd Snow Science Winter School will be organized at the campus of the FMI Arctic Research Centre (FMI-ARC) in the Finnish Lapland. Scientific activities at the site date back to 1858, when the Societas Scientarum Fennica founded the first weather station near the community of Sodankylä (orig. SoańĎegilli in the Sami language), above the Arctic circle.
