Just in time for the start of a new winter season we have a fantastic new project that needs your help – Snow Spotter
Watersheds can be dominated by forests and snow provides a natural storage of fresh water. Forests can intercept up to 60% of the total annual snowfall and 25-45% of the intercepted snow can be lost from the watershed back to the atmosphere through sublimation. Forest interception thus plays a vital role in our understanding of how much snow is in forests.
With your help researchers hope to better understand forest snow interception and ultimately how much fresh water storage we have to last us through the dry season.
