Snow and Ice Hydrology Workshop: Colorado State University, August 18”22, 1969



The major objective of the workshop was to improve communications among those from various professional backgrounds and geographical regions having a common interest in the hydrology of snow and ice. During the workshop, the state of the art of snow and ice hydrology was explored and an attempt was made to identify and define some of the major problems and possible solutions.

Major workshop sessions were devoted to: (1) distribution and measurement of the snow cover; (2) physics of metamorphism and melt; (3) snow and ice management of water yields; (4) standardization of snow observations; (5) measurement of snowfall and its redistribution; and (6) research cooperation and improvement of communications among those working in the field of snow and ice.
