Mammoth Lakes Ink for Jeff Dozier's Annual Mountain Snowpack Intensive

Professor Jeff Dozier's annual Sierra Snowpack course (ESM 236) was covered last week by the Mammoth Times newspaper. The article, titled "Snow lovers take it up a notch," discusses theweeklong course that Dozier has been teaching nearly every year for about twenty years. Students spend mornings in the classroom at the Sierra Nevada Aquatic Research Laboratory, part of the UC Natural Reserve System. They then take to the snow on Mammoth Mountain in the afternoon to learn about tools and techniques for gathering data that are used by scientists for a variety of purposes.

An article about the course also ran previously on page 8 of the Fall 2012 issue of Bren News.
