Long Lying Snow on the Hills of Scotland
On the Cairngorms and Nevis range, snow often persists from one season to the next. In this lecture, Iain will discuss these and other locations in Scotland where snow can be found lying the longest, and the factors that go into how long it lasts.
Iain Cameron has been interested in long-lying snow on the hills of Scotland since he was a child. This interest has developed to the extent that he is now the lead author of an annual snow-patch paper that appears in the Royal Meteorological Society's 'Weather' journal. Iain has appeared recently in the national media talking about this subject, most notably on the BBC's Countryfile and The One Show.
