The 4th Snow Science Winter School takes place at Col du Lautaret, France, from Feb. 11-17, 2018. You will learn:

• State-of-the-art snow measurement techniques (measurement of specific surface area by reflection and spectroscopy, near-infrared photography and high-resolution penetrometry and micro-tomography)
• Understanding the physical processes responsible for the evolution of the snowpack
• Understanding vertically resolved snowpack models (Crocus, SNOWPACK) and larger scale land-surface models

Any graduate student or post-doc working on snow or in some snow related field is welcome to participate.
The focus of this workshop lies on alpine snowpacks, field measurements and snowpack models combined with theoretical lessons in the classroom. Field and laboratory measurements will be done in small groups of 3-4 students. Each group of students will have to prepare a report describing the methods, results and interpretation, and a comparison between field measurements and snow modelling results.
