Learn about the father of snow science in this engaging lecture from Dr. Carlos Ramirez Reyes
Because we experienced one of the biggest winters in more than 40 years and since we reside in a high desert environment, it is critical for scientists and researchers to understand how winter snow impacts spring and summer streamflows and water supply. James E. Church figured out and perfected a way to measure snow moisture content along various snow course locations found across the Sierra Nevada.
Dr. Carlos Ramirez-Reyes will discuss how an interdepartmental team of experts from across the University Libraries worked together to digitize, preserve, and make accessible data found in the James Edward Church Papers manuscript collection.
This in-person event will be held in the Prim Library at the University of Nevada, Reno at Lake Tahoe. A reception with light snacks and beverages will be hosted after the talk.
When: Thursday, September 21, 2023, 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM PST
