    The 2013/2014 Sampling Season Has Officially Begun!

      We had a fantastic Fall Kick-Off Meeting at the Plymouth State Meteorology Department, hosted by CoCoRAHS Albedo Coordinator, Brendon Hoch. Thanks so much Brendon and student helpers for such an awesome event!

      Here are a few photos from our tour of the met. station on the roof and the broadcast studio (Thanks, Bill!)

    CoCoRaHS Meeting in July

      Good Afternoon CoCoRAHS!

      Our meet up to exchange instrumentation and discuss the findings from season #2 of CoCoRAHS Albedo will be scheduled when I return from Alaska. You heard right, I'm heading to Alaska to help measure snow albedo near Denali Base Camp. You can read more about the expedition at the PolarTrec website.

      I leave for Alaska next Wednesday May 15th and will return sometime in late June. While most of the research team will be up on Mt. Hunter collecting a 1000-year ice core record, I will be at Denali base camp collecting snow samples, measuring albedo, and helping maintain an automated aerosol sampler and weather station. I will provide a synopsis of the field season when I return. In the meantime, be sure to check back periodically for updates on the PolarTrec website to see how the ice core drilling is going!

      Happy Spring!

      Liz.
