Abstract: Measuring snowfall anywhere is a challenge — but perhaps nowhere more so than Antarctica. Accurate snowfall measurements there are critical for understanding how the continent’s ice sheets are changing, but hurricane-force winds and frigid temperatures have made such measurements nearly impossible. NCAR Scientist Scott Landolt is testing new technologies that might finally make accurate snowfall measurements in Antarctica possible. Come and learn about his project and the challenges of working in such an extreme environment.
