Moshiri is a small village in northern Hokkaido, whre th climate is characterized by heavy snow and cold temperature.
Our university has experimental forest in this region, which has been the venue of our snow and ice field course since 2008.
After three years of break, we returned to Moshiri with 20 graduate students, including those from University of Oslo.
Wanderful feeling to see the students enjoying temperature below 20 degree C and snow deeper than 1.5 m, as well as friendly and international atmosphere.
Results of snow and atmospheric measurements were processed and presented on the final day of the program.
The program was fruitful and enjoyable with kind hospitality of the research station. Thank you!
