The Hill highlights geoscience student and faculty for snow and water research

Geoscience faculty HP Marshall, Jeff Johnson and doctoral student Naheem Adebisi recently made national news for their Cryosphere Geophysics and Remote Sensing research. The Hill, a political news website, published an article, “How scientists are trying to help save people from avalanches and manage the effects of climate change from space” by Aaron Kalischer-Coggins.

The article features the Boise State team’s work with NASA SnowEx as well as novel methods to track avalanches using infrasound. This research is essential not only to improving the monitoring of water storage in the mountain snowpack, but also avalanche hazard.
