SOMMER snow monitoring sensors provide valuable data to explore the effects of snow on the evolution of frozen soils. Lead by Miguel Ángel de Pablo the team from the University of Alcalá explores the impact of snow on the permafrost and active layers in the context of climatic change in Antarctica. For this reason they recently installed an advanced snow monitoring station by SOMMER Messtechnik.
The unique snow-pack-analyser system obtains an innovation boost.
Improved usability and new features help the SPA-2 to be an even more useful snow monitoring system. The SPA-2 provides the data for a reliable assessment of the snow pack’s condition and allows predictions about the water run-off to be expected during the snow melting process.
