Posters and Presentations
CHARIS authors’ contributions to American Geophysical Union (AGU) meeting, December 2012, San Francisco:
Establishing a Collaborative Effort to Assess the Role of Glaciers and Seasonal Snow Cover in the Hydrology of the Mountains of High Asia. R. Armstrong et al., poster.
Using geochemical and isotopic chemistry to evaluate source water contributions to the hydrology of two high-elevation basins in the Himalayas of Nepal. A. Wilson et al., poster.
Using MODIS to Map Changes in Earth’s Annual Minimum Exposed Snow and Ice. M.J. Brodzik et al., poster.
Variability of snow cover extent and snow melt runoff in the Himalaya-Karakoram. Barrett et al., presentation.
Other CHARIS posters:
Estimating the contribution of snow and glacier melt to runoff from the Upper Indus River. A.P. Barrett, R.L. Armstrong, M.J. Brodzik, S.J. Singh Khalsa and B. Raup. 2012. Poster presented at IGS symposium Glaciers and Icesheets in a Warmer World, Fairbanks, AK, June 2012. This poster describes a strategy for filling gaps in the MODIS product that are due to clouds and missing data. The strategy was selected after several variants were tested.
Comparing and contrasting the hydrology of high-elevation areas in the Rockies and the Himalayas. A. Wilson, M.W. Williams, F. Pellicciotti, R.B. Kayastha, I. Juszak. Poster (abstract here) presented at the Long-Term Ecological Research Program All Scientists Meeting, Estes Park, Colorado, Sept 9-14, 2012.
