Alpine HydroClimatology in Alberta (Canada)

An intense course on principles on cold regions hydrology has been organized and carried out by the University of Saskatchewan (Prof. Dr. John Pomeroy) in March 2011. The course was held at the Biogeosciences Institute of the University of Calgary (Barrier Lake Field Camp) and covered various aspects of hydrology (e.g. blowing of snow, snow interception and sublimation) with emphasis on hydrology in higher latitudes. Thomas Marke attended the course as representative of the Alpine HydroClimatology team.
