Mitchell Center and SERC Awarded Funding for Snow Research

This 3-year project, funded by a NOAA “B-WET” grant and coordinated by Sarah Nelson, will engage 1,275 students and 30 high school teachers in research collaborations with professional scientists on the changing nature of the snowpack across Maine. The project focus is on the coastal climate zone where snowmelt provides clues for diadromous fish migration and changes in flood flows. Data will be used to expand the number and the geographic scope of existing monitoring programs. The creation of an ongoing field-based snowpack monitoring program will bring students into regular contact with working scientists and has the potential to continue for many years.
