NASA/JPL Airborne Snow Observatory overflight

Posted by: | February 17, 2016 | No Comment |

On Tuesday, Feb. 8th, the NASA/JPL Airborne Snow Observatory collected lidar and hyperspectral data over our Forest Elevation Snow Transect (ForEST) sites. We had a snow survey crew making spectrometer measurements of snow, characterizing snowpack density and depth along our 1-km transects, and characterizing snowpack stratigraphy in snow pits. Spectrometer data were collected on 2/8 when it was cloud-free. Clouds moved in later in the day so no spectrometer data were collected after 2PM on 2/8, none on 2/9.
