This webinar will discuss snow and ice applications and the use of Malvern Panalytical’s ASD FieldSpec® spectroradiometer for data measurement and analysis.
Who should attend?
Those that have interest in snow optics, and are involved and/ or have interest in snow and ice application studies for climate and environmental monitoring purposes, and want to learn how the ASD FieldSpec spectroradiometer can be used for data measurement purposes.
To learn the importance of snow optical property studies for earth system models of climate, weather, and hydrology and how the ASD FieldSpec spectroradiometer aids in these studies.
What will you learn?
• The importance of studying snow optical properties and collecting measurements to validate remote sensing retrievals and constrain earth system models for climate, weather, and hydrology.
• How an ASD FieldSpec® spectroradiometer can be used to measure solar irradiance and snow reflectance/albedo, and how these measurements can be leveraged to retrieve additional snow properties like effective snow grain size and radiative forcing by light absorbing particles.
• How a drone and other equipment have been paired with the FieldSpec instrument to further advance our understanding of snow energy and mass balance, with examples from recent field campaigns.
