ASO - Airborne Snow Observatory

Friday, October 2, 2015

The Airborne Snow Observatory finished up all of our summer Colorado surveys. We’ve flown a total 83.5 flight hours since September 10 and have surveyed the Rio Grande and Conejos basins as well as Ouray and San Miguel counties and large portions of Montrose and San Juan counties. The plane transited to Mammoth Lakes, CA and did a test to determine data quality due to smoke produced by nearby fires and determined the smoke at these levels to be a non-issue. Later this week when the clouds clear up we will start surveying our CA snow-free targets.
