|Parent name:||Snow Modelling Iceland|
|Title:||Snow modelling Hörgardalur|
|Abstract:||This is the northern Iceland field site for the snow modelling in Iceland project. Fieldwork in March 2014 collected measurements of snow depth and density near the archaeological site of Skuggi.
These measurements along with LANDSAT imagery is used to calibrate a process based snow model for the region. This model will be run under different climatic scenarios to simulate the changes in snow cover and duration from the Medieval Climate Anomaly through the Little Ice Age.
