The depth of the snow in the high mountains is important information for those who work with climate, floods and hydropower.
– There are many who are very interested in snow depth data. There is really something missing and which is not so easy to get if you have not been there yourself and measured, says Désirée Treichler, researcher at the Department of Geosciences at the University of Oslo. Treichler is the project leader of the new project SNOWDEPTH, based at Dept of Geosciences, University of Oslo.
