NASA’s SnowEx is a multi-year airborne snow
campaign starting later this year. Its goal is to collect
multi-sensor observations plus ground truth to enable trade
studies for snow satellite mission designs. (more info is
available at snow.nasa.gov)
With the first year’s field activities targeted
for Oct/Nov 2016 and Feb/Mar 2017, planning is accelerating
Hopefully you have already received the notice
of the workshop in Seattle, March 29-31, 2016.
To help ensure that all interested parties have
certain preliminary information on aircraft, instruments, and
sites, we have scheduled a SnowEx
Webex for Wednesday, March 9, 1—3pm Eastern Time.
Details will follow in a few days.
If you are interested in participating in
SnowEx—whether you plan to attend the Seattle workshop or not—we
encourage you to join this Webex.
It’s been over a decade since the snow
community has had a major community-wide campaign like SnowEx, and
promising new sensing techniques, ground truth techniques, and
modeling approaches have become available since then.
So, preparing for SnowEx is truly exciting. We
invite you to join the planning discussions to make SnowEx a
