Nina is talking about the cryosphere at the next level — in fact, she thinks it’s important to give ice and snow a “voice”! The truth is, Nina does believe in magic. As a resident of Kansas City, Missouri, she works as a university professor. She is passionate about ice, the extreme environment, technology, statistics, and social science (studying indigenous people, citizen scientists and athletes). Her own experience of studying ice includes collecting black carbon in the Arctic, measuring snow depth, and monitoring glaciers.
What is community science? Why join CSO?
Community science is simply when regular folks join forces with scientists to turn backyard adventures into cosmic discoveries. To Nina, the answer is simple as to why more people should join CSO: “It’s good vibe, positive outcome and great learning opportunity.”
