AHC team prepares installation of a snow monitoring network

The AHC team is currently preparing the setup of an innovative low-cost snow/climate monitoring network in the Brixenbachtal catchment (Tyrol, Austria, see picture below). The installed SnoMoS (Snow Monitoring System) has ben developed by colleagues from the Chair of Hydrology at University Freiburg (Prof. Weiler, Dr. Pohl) and will be used for continuous measurement of snow and meteorological conditions in- and outside the forest canopy in the framework of the STELLA project.
