SnowHydrology 2024 – 4th International Conference on Snow Hydrology

Venue


Institut National de Recherche pour l’Agriculture, l’alimentation et l’Environnement (INRAE)
2 rue de la papeterie
38402 Saint-Martin d’Hères
France

Storage and release of water from seasonal snow covers constitute critical components of the hydrological cycle in many parts of the world, affecting water availability, vegetation patterns, ecosystems, and weather. Measuring, modeling, and understanding the processes that control deposition and ablation dynamics of snow provide ample research challenges, especially in complex mountainous terrain. SnowHydrology2024 provides an exceptional opportunity to discuss recent advances in all aspects of snow hydrology in a dedicated conference setting, including snow cover processes, distribution dynamics, model development, operational snowmelt forecasting and data assimilation, remote sensing of snow, new experimental methods, climate change effects on snow water resources, snow-vegetation interactions, and snow ecohydrology.
