[REMINDER] RE: CRYOLIST request [AGU 2017: NASA SnowEx session]

Dear Colleagues:

This is a friendly reminder from NASA SnowEx organizing team.
You are kindly reminded that the due of AGU 2017 annual meeting, 08/02/2017 is quickly approaching!

Please consider submitting an abstract to the upcoming AGU session C034:  Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: NASA SnowEx and Multisensor Approaches to Measure Snow Water Equivalent.

    Session details are given below, and abstracts are due August 2nd.

    AGU Fall Meeting

    Session ID: 22687
    Session Title: C034. Remote Sensing of the Cryosphere: NASA SnowEx and Multisensor Approaches to        Measure Snow Water Equivalent
    Section/Focus Group: Cryosphere
    Session Viewer Link: https://agu.confex.com/agu/fm17/preliminaryview.cgi/Session22687

    Session Description:
    Snow is of key interest for water resources, natural hazards, water security and weather/climate. Accurate   measurement of snow-water equivalent (SWE) enables improved management of freshwater resources. However, current remote sensing techniques underestimate SWE especially in densely-forested areas around the globe, making estimation of SWE challenging. The conveners solicit papers on the measurement of SWE and snow energy balance in different canopy types and densities using a combination of ground, aircraft and satellite instruments. To address the challenges of measuring energy balance and SWE in forested areas, we must determine the sensitivity and accuracy of different remote sensing techniques, such as active and passive microwave, imaging spectrometry and lidar. Papers based on in-situ measurements and modeling are also solicited, to improve our understanding of the retrieval of SWE from space, and to aid in quantifying the accuracy of SWE retrieval using multip
 le sensing techniques and modeling under varying conditions.

    Primary Convener: Dorothy K Hall, Michigan State University, Department of Geography, Environment and Spatial Sciences, East Lansing, MI, United States
    Conveners:  Edward J Kim, NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, Greenbelt, MD, United States,
    Charles K Gatebe, Universities Space Research Association Greenbelt, Greenbelt, MD, United States
    Kelly Elder, US Forest Service Fort Collins, Fort Collins, CO, United States

    Co-Organized with:
    Cryosphere, and Hydrology
