Dr. Domine continues to discuss his work collecting samples on the tundra and sea ice. He highlights the importance of studying the heat conductivity of snow and its impact on climate change. Dr. Domine mentions that unfortunately most people have not recognized the active role that snow plays in the climate system, and that France is not currently funding research in this area. The conversation also touches on the importance of snow to the French economy, particularly in the ski industry.
