Thanks to a half-century of snow observations, NASA scientists have learned a number of amazing facts about snow, which are crucial to understanding what’s necessary to advance snow measurements.

Scientists are in the field right now, testing advanced technologies to measure snow like never before. In a five-year study called SnowEx, researchers are improving techniques to determine how much water is stored in snow-covered regions around the world. More accurate snow measurements will help scientists and decision-makers better understand our world’s water supply and better predict floods and droughts.
