Photographic observational techniques for snow surveying the Columbia Basin, under study by the weather Bureau, are described briefly. Twelve stations for obtaining photographs by cooperative observers were in operation in 1952 and 1953. No conclusive results are given, but comparison of photographs obtained in 1952 with the daily streamflow suggest favorable results.
