Individual Storm Event Influence on Seasonal Snow Depth Distribution in Complex Mountain Terrain – Case Study: February 26th, 2020 Deep Slab Avalanche
This research explores the spatial variability of snow depth evolution in complex mountain terrain and an adjacent protected meadow on a sub-weekly basis over the course of a winter. This poster will specifically look at a natural avalanche event captured during the 2019/2020 winter season. We utilize current UAS and photogrammetry methods to measure snow depth change in the sub-decimeter scale. The results of this project will reduce uncertainty associated with snowpack analysis by quantifying snowpack evolution on inaccessible slopes at detailed spatial and temporal resolutions.
