David Hill is a professor at Oregon State University and a National Geographic Explorer. No matter the hemisphere, if it is spring time, you’ll find him out on skis sampling the snow between mountain summit and trailhead. For over 25 years, he has studied how water behaves from snowy mountain headwaters to coastal environments. David joins us to talk about how we can use citizen science to study snow.
