Workshop: Liquid water in snow - Measurement techniques and modeling approaches
Date and location
2 - 4 April 2014 in Davos, Switzerland
 Aims and Scope
·      Compare different measurement techniques and their accuracy
·      Learn more on current assumptions to model liquid water transport and storage in snow
·      Gather ideas to obtain good validation and verification data
The workshop is dedicated to both snow hydrologists and researchers dealing with avalanche formation, as well as scientists from the remote sensing and glaciology communities aiming at retrieving snow water equivalents. The workshop will last 2 full days and is organized by SLF Davos and IUP Heidelberg. We expect the number of attendees to be rather small (30-50 people) so that there will be ample room for exchange and discussions. The goal is to gather specialists from renowned research institutions worldwide. The first day will be dedicated to measuring techniques whereas on the second the focus will be on modeling approaches. We plan to open both workshop days with a keynote lecture.
Furthermore, we plan to organize an optional field trip to our field test site at Weissfluhjoch the day after the workshop with the aim of providing hands-on field experience on the different measurements techniques.
