Today we are returning to the Snow Pack. Today's objective will be to measure the density of the snowpack. This will be essential in establishing the insulation value of the snow to determine if life can be supported in these areas. Later in the week, we will connect this data with the radiation, conduction, and convection in regard to the sun and earth.
If you were not here you may want to complete this worksheet to help you understand the calculations.
Here is the handout from yesterday and the day before. If you were not in school or did not participate, you will need to familiarize yourself with these concepts so you can participate in the connection portion later this week.
