As part of their NASA ABoVE project studying the effects of changing snowpacks on Dall sheep, Nolin and Cosgrove spent a week in Alaska mapping snow depth and digging shallow snow pits to characterize snow in the Wrangells Mountains near Nabesna, AK.

On April 23-27, the Mountain Sentinels group hosted a workshop entitled “Transdisciplinary Modeling of Mountain Social-Ecological Systems” at Rock Springs Ranch in Bend, Oregon. Chaired by Anne Nolin, Julia Klein, Catherine Tucker, and Robin Reid, the workshop brought together 22 participants representing participatory research across 15+ mountain regions on five continents. The broader objectives this […]

PhD student Chris Cosgrove has been awarded a small grant from the American Alpine Club to develop miniaturized automated weather information in snowy mountain regions. The grant, entitled ‘SnowBot’: an open-source automated weather station for wireless sensor networks in high altitude/latitude environments provides $750 in funding for Chris to develop tiny monitoring stations which will […]

Nolin has been added to the NASA SnowEx Science Definition Team and has received five years of funding to support this effort. The SnowEx project (https://snow.nasa.gov/snowex) is a multi-year airborne snow campaign focusing on accurate estimates of water is stored in Earth’s terrestrial snow-covered regions. In this capacity, Nolin and her students will achieve the […]

It is my pleasure to announce that Travis Roth, PhD candidate in the Water Resources Graduate Program, has been selected to receive a NASA Earth and Space Science Fellowship. HIs project, entitled “Understanding Forest Structure Effects on Snow Accumulation and Ablation for Improved Satellite-Based Snow Mapping and Model Characterization” was one of 73 selected for […]

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 […]

The non-profit Protect Our Winters (http://protectourwinters.org) sponsored the first POW Athletes’ Summit at Squaw Valley ski resort on Dec. 15-16. Anne Nolin and Jason Box presented an overview of climate change/climate science for the high profile snowsports athletes.  What a terrific group (and the snow was great too)!! (

It is snowing a ton in the Cascades and we are preparing for another set of snow surveys at our ForEST network sites. While it may seem like the snowpack is above normal, in fact we are at normal level for snow water equivalent (and slightly above normal for total precipitation). It seems like an […]

NW Climate Science Conference

Posted by: | November 5, 2015 | No Comment |

On Nov. 4th, Nolin attended the NW Climate Science Conference in Coeur d’Alene, ID where she presented new results from the “No Snow/Low Flow” NSF-funded Rapid Research Response Project. Her talk was entitled “Seeing the Future? Hydrologic Impacts of a Record Warm Winter and Dry Spring in the Oregon Cascades”.
