Snow science is more important than it has ever been, especially in the West, where snow contributes so much to our water resources.

Dr. Andrew Schwartz lives and works at the UC Berkeley’s Central Sierra Snow Laboratory in Soda Springs (CSSL) California with his wife and two dogs. It is about 10 miles from Truckee in one of the snowiest places in the United States.

He arrived there about one year ago and saw the second highest October snowfall ever measured in the Sierra Nevada and the highest snowfall for any December in recorded history, but not very much snow since then.

April 1 is a critical measurement since it occurs after the rainiest months in California. Snow Lab Hill is at an elevation of 6894 feet.

Dr. Schwartz has written an essay, April 4,2022, for the New York Times. “I’m a Scientist in California. Here’s What Worries Me Most About Drought. Our tools for managing water in the West are growing more inaccurate.”
