Final Report

The Cryosphere Working Group organized a field-oriented training course for teaching snow cover quantification techniques at the Finnish Meteorological Institute Arctic Research Center. Contemporary fields method require significant experience and training to achieve high-quality, accurate results, necessitating a field training course. This week-long course was intended to train early career scientists to better utilize field techniques for in situ observations as well as ground-based remote sensing instrumentation, with classroom lectures to support the field activities. By learning advanced field methods in the early career stage, young scientists will help improve quality standards in the Arctic research community in the area of snow science.
