CITIZEN SCIENCE

Community Snow Observations

The Community Snow Observations (CSO) project gathers information about snow in data-sparse mountain areas by engaging backcountry travelers to measure snow depth and submit those observations in the Mountain Hub app. Snow depth observations go into the CSO database and help snow scientists understand how snow is distributed, which allows them to develop better snow and hydrology products that help you. Check out the publicly available ‘Snow Data’ web app.

Read the CSO Holiday Newsletter to learn more about the project, it's funding through NASA and Mammut's donation of the Mountain Hub app to CSO.
