New funding to study snow

MRC is leading a new collaborative project that seeks to improve the modelling of seasonal snow and catchment processes. The three-year project has received funding of 733,000 from the Deep South Challenge: Changing with our Climate, and will be led by Associate Professor Nicolas Cullen, in collaboration with Te Herenga Waka-Victoria University of Wellington and the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research.

It will leverage remote sensing expertise developped within MRC with the Matariki project to develop new snow observations, in particular derive and monitor snow depth from satellites.
