Measure your snow, help the planet!

Science for Citizens has teamed up with cryosphere researchers at the University of Warterloo to collect snow-depth measurements from around the world. These measurements are used to track climate changes.

So, join thousands of other citizen scientists, like Paul, and find a fresh patch of snow, plunge a ruler in it, and report the measurement. You’ll see your report show up on the cool map of snow measurements from across the globe.

This project is part of the Changing Planet series on NBC; a collaboration between the National Science Foundation, NBC News, Discover Magazine and ScienceforCitizens.net. Read more about Changing Planet here!
