Dr. Anne Nolin is a Professor in the Geography Department at the University of Nevada, Reno. Her research focuses on snow hydrology and climate, snow-forest-fire interactions, and mountains as social-ecological systems. Nolin has three decades of experience in remote sensing, field measurements, and modeling of changing snow and ice. She and her students have published on “at risk” snow, impacts of wildfire on snow, new snow metrics in a warming world, melting snow and glaciers from Greenland to Alaska to the Andes, and new ways of mapping snow and ice from space.
