My research interests relate to substantial questions concerning how the cryosphere is responding to global environmental change. In many places, seasonal snowmelt makes a significant contribution to the annual water budget. Quantifying regional snow water storage is crucial for effective water resource management. With global environmental change, we are starting to observe changes to seasonal snow dynamics that will affect people in many parts of the world. Fundamental accurate observations and measurements of the cryosphere, therefore, are critical to help better understand changes to the cryosphere and more efficiently manage snow dominated water resource.
