The Campaign

SnowEx is a five year NASA-led campaign which aims to enhance remote sensing capabilities of snow in forested regions. Its first deployment primarily took place in the winter of 2017 over portions of Colorado. Four aircraft equipped with radars, radiometers and other remote sensing instruments, along with ground instruments were used to record changes in snow/ice accumulation, as well as meteorological observations such as snowfall rates. SnowEx plans to use similar instrumentation in regions beyond Colorado for future deployments, in order to make observations in a variety of snow climates. SnowEx is funded by NASA’s Terrestrial Hydrology Program.
