This Water Wise Wednesday featured Chris Landry the Executive Director of the Center for Snow and Avalanche Studies (CSAS) in Silverton, CO. If you remember the pink snow from last year then you have already experienced "dust on snow". Read a little about it below and learn a lot Wed. March 24th.




The Center for Snow and Avalanche Studies is home to the Colorado Dust-on-Snow program, or CODOS, an applied science collaboration of the CSAS with researcher Dr. Tom Painter at the University of Utah.

The formation of the Colorado Dust-on-Snow (CODOS) program at CSAS is a direct outcome of our explanation of 2006 snow melt patterns. Regional water conservation districts throughout Colorado, the Colorado Water Conservation Board, as well the Western Water Assessment program at the University of Colorado are now providing direct funding to CSAS and the CODOS program. CODOS conducts timely dust-on-snow monitoring throughout the Colorado mountains enabling water managers to include the very significant effects of dust-on-snow into their forecasts of snowmelt timing and intensity. This rapid application of research to water resource management was highlighted in our poster presentation to AGU.
