mountains, snow, avalanches and climate at #ISSW2018
Now sitting in on a session with @oeav on excessive ski area development in Tirol.
Lots of ski areas in Tirol, more lifts planned as resorts try to outrace #globalwarming. But it’s too much, says @oeav -
A planned new law in Tirol would open a “back door” to new expansions and greenwash ski development, says @oeav president Andreas Ermacora.
Dear snow scientists: am I missing something at #issw2018? There is ALREADY detailed documentation of dramatic low-elevation snow decline.…
Here it sounds so abstract and distant but it’s already reality for many ski hills and communities.…
There’s ‘variability,’ and there are climate extremes that already have a direct and serious impact on ski communities.
Innsbruck = Breckenridge when it comes to parking & traffic ... #transportation madness in the anthropoid right
This reminds of the big Free Box in #telluride... #degrowth
All #risotto ...
Lunch break is over so back to #ISSW2018 and geeking out on snow and avalanche science!
Tough titles, but it’s all critical info about what happens to snow with #globalwarming. Snow turns into water (or glacial ice) and changes in the mountains will affect people far away.
Hmmm, what I’d like to see at #issw2020 is some interdisciplinary research on #snow and #globalwarming and discussion of cumulative effects. Too many silos ... #issw2018
... and from my old @Arapahoe_Basin stomping grounds, some info on avalanche control in the Steep Gullies. How many towers and feet of cable total @als_blog?
Looks like #drones, specialized apps and the cloud are all part of the future for avalanche safety #issw2018
... and field testing starts this season for wearable warning systems, with auditory and haptic signals. Very interesting (but no substitute for basic avalanche & mountain savvy. #issw2018
... it’s already been evaluated (previous tweet) in a virtual reality setting with a specially designed game. I have mixed feelings. How far are we willing to go with technology? #issw2018 ...
On the other hand, it’s a really cool idea!
This, apparently, is the Death Star for avalanches. @ me if you want to know more. #issw2018
Automatic people detection sounds like surveillance ... #skiing #avalanches #issw2018
Making snowflakes in a lab - totally geeking out at #issw2018!

Short lap. Check out the horn on that caterpillar, though!
I was gonna start a 🦆 party hashtag, but there was some weird stuff associated with that. Seriously, always check before you start a hashtag.
There was some serious jostling and splashing going on. My guess is it’s the feisty young adults, testing their feathers.

Reporting at a seed bank for native and ancient plants today ... #biodiversity
Just a reminder that healthy ecosystems and landscapes support insect diversity.
