M.S. Defense: Calculation of Sublimation from Tundra Snowpack in Alaska

WERC M.S. student Kelsey Stockert's defense titled "Calculation of Sublimation from Tundra Snowpack in Alaska" will take place on March 2, 2022 at 3 p.m. in Duckering 353 or Zoom.

 

Calculation of Sublimation from Tundra Snowpack in Alaska

Snow sublimation is the direct transfer of water between the snowpack and the atmosphere and plays a fundamental role in the winter water balance. There is scarce research that quantifies sublimation by direct measurements. This study uses Eddy Covariance data to calculate and analyze sublimation rates from three locations within Imnavait Creek watershed, a small Arctic watershed located on the North Slope of Alaska. These results are compared to measurements from other studies. Meteorologic data is evaluated to investigate how Imnavait site conditions may affect sublimation rates.
