About this workshop

The 1st Annual NASA Airborne Snow Observatory Workshop will be a forum for discussion of the accomplishments, science and applications, pathfinding for space missions, partnerships, and directions forward of the ASO program.  The NASA ASO is a coupled imaging spectrometer and scanning lidar system that has brought us the first comprehensive mapping of mountain basin snow water equivalent and albedo, providing scientists with unique ability to constrain hydrologic models and water managers the first knowledge of actual water volumes in their mountain snowpack resource. In this workshop, we bring together water scientists, glaciologists, water managers, ecosystem managers, and policymakers to work on lessons learned and the path forward for the ASO program in the context of NASA Earth Science and Applied Sciences, as well as water management in the Western US and beyond.
