        Climate Change is Shrinking the Sierra Nevada Snowpack

        Learn how climate change is shrinking the Sierra Nevada snowpack in this video from NATURE: Yosemite. The video follows members of the California Cooperative Snow Survey as they measure snow levels and discuss trends they’ve observed in 34 years of living in the Sierra Nevada mountain range. In the accompanying classroom activity, students use the engineering design process to design tools to study snowfall themselves. The teaching tips suggest that students analyze data from the California Cooperative Snow Survey.
