IASC "Cutting barriers in snow knowledge" Workshop
We would like to announce the
IASC "Cutting barriers in snow
8th of April 2018 in Vienna, 13:00-17:30
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
