Mountain Hydrology Group - Colorado Snow Research, 2011-2016

Snow hydrology field work on and around Niwot Ridge, Steamboat, and Senator Beck basin, Colorado in January and May 2011, winter 2012, May 2013, summer 2014 and May 2015. Photo subjects are Leah Meromy, Danielle Perrot, Morgan Zeliff, Jennifer Morse, Emily Baker, Dominik Schneider, Adrian Harpold, Theo Barnhart and Metta Gilbert, and Kate Hale. Photos were taken by Leah Memory, Danielle Perrot, Dominik Schneider, Maggie Burns, Adrian Harpold, Emily Baker, Josh Jones, and Keith Jennings. VIEW PHOTOS IN FULL SCREEN MODE (put cursor over photo, full screen icon will appear, click on it.)
