Bigelow Tower and Snow Videos

The work of Shirley Papuga and Paul Brooks was recently featured on Channel 13 KOLD news here in Tucson as part of KOLD's 60 second science feature. The video story features a time lapse video from a remote repeat photography camera near the Mount Bigelow tower site in the Santa Catalina Mountains above Tucson. Dr. Papuga's group installed the camera as part of science efforts by Biosphere 2 and the Santa Catalina Mountains Critical Zone Observatory. Paul is caught on camera talking about the importance of snow and the way the tower is used to better understand the meteorology of the southwest.

The video is embedded below-
