A growing population coupled with climate change means every drop will count. Scientists are mapping terrain and snow with lasers to provide a more accurate picture of the snowpack. It's called the <a href="http://aso.jpl.nasa.gov" target="_blank">NASA JPL Airborne Snow Observatory</a>. Aspen Public Radio’s Marci Krivonen spoke with Jeff Deems, a research scientist with the University of Colorado, Boulder. He’s involved with the project.<br />&nbsp;</p> Fri, 07 Feb 2014 13:38:15 +0000 Marci Krivonen 14827 at http://krcc.org Researchers use Lasers to Measure Snowpack
