Zachary Miller

My research is focused on snow and ice in mountain environments. I use modern remote sensing tools along with traditional manual measurement techniques to study snow distribution, avalanche processes, and mountain meteorology to better understand our frozen hydrological resources.

Biography:

My interest in snow science developed throughout my undergraduate studies, internships, professional avalanche work, and masters studies. My main research focus is snow distribution in mountain environments and is closely tied to avalanche science, meteorology, hydrology, ecology, and glaciology. I use modern remote sensing tools along with traditional manual measurement techniques to explore the interactions of these systems on the processes of snow accumulation, redistribution and ablation. I currently work with the Climate Change in Mountain Ecosystems group at Northern Rocky Mountain Science Center conducting research in and around Glacier National Park.
