Snow survey and water supply forecasting programs [were] recently organized under the U. S. Department of Agricultural Engineers, Division of Irrigation Research, under an act of the 74th Congress effective July 1,1935. The paper presents some of the early history of snow surveying in the Western States under the guidance of Dr. J. E. Church. A discussion of the various instruments for measuring snow and weighing the sample to obtain inches of water in the snowpack is presented. Also the plans for Cooperative Program with other Federal and State and private agencies involved with irrigation and the management of water flowing in streams that are largely fed by melting snow. Note: No other meeting was held in 1935.
