CSAS Hosts Minnesota State University – Mankato Field Camp
CSAS News: February 2009
Dr. Don Friend made yet another pilgrimage with students from Minnesota State University at Mankato to Silverton for a field class in February, 2009. And, sustaining the tradition established by his graduate school advisor at Arizona State University, Dr. Mel Marcus, students spent plenty of time in the snow, learning and practicing snowpack observation techniques together in large snowpits.
