Sub-Arctic snow as a complex natural species

 

Directeur - Sacha Bourgeois-Gironde

Public - M1/M2

Dates - 2022/2023

 

The project consists in a state-of-the-art literature review of what we know about the types of snow (density, color, texture, albedo effect, etc.) and takes root in a comparison between classifications of categories of snow in a modern science approach and an indigenous one (Northern circumpolar regions). One starting point in a popular science article, to get a hint of the topic, can be found here : https://uphere.ca/articles/art-and-science-snow
