Training School on Snow Observations and Data Assimilation in Bormio, 12-16 March 2017COST action ES1404 on snow, http://harmosnow.eu will arrange a spring school on snow, focusing on snow data assimilation. The training school will be held in Bormio, Italy in March 12-16, 2018.
To learn and discuss the state-of-the art and developing snow data assimilation methods for NWP, hydrology and detailed snowpack models:
COST will cover all local expenses including accommodation, food and the field trip. The flight tickets and local transport (up to 300 euros) will be covered by application when necessary. In special cases the travel budget can be extended.
COST ES-1404 considers that the school programme is equivalent to 3 ECTS.

3rd Snow Science Winter SchoolDate 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. Soađegilli in the Sami language), above the Arctic circle.
