CSAS's Senator Beck Study Plot Featured on Cover of New Book

We're flattered that a photograph of our Senator Beck Study Plot instrument mast was chosen for the cover of a new book edited by Richard Armstrong and Eric Brun titled: Snow and Climate: Physical Processes, Surface Energy Exchange and Modeling, published by Cambridge University Press.  Richard Armstrong spent several years working here in Silverton and within shouting distance of the Senator Beck Basin Study area during the San Juan Avalanche Project conducted by INSTAAR, in the 1970's, and is now a Senior Research Scientist at the World Data Center for Glaciology and at CIRES - University of Colorado.  His co-editor, Eric Brun, is Head of Research at Meteo France.
