      Not what you usually meet on a field trip, agreed:oops:

      Why aye man!  

      You're evidently doing a PhD in something you're deeply interested in- great to see, and good luck!

      Newcastle is traditionally one of the most reliable places in England for winter snow events.  It doesn't necessarily snow significantly more often than at 125m in Tipperary, but when it does snow, it is more likely to stick around.  Until 2004, it was virtually a hard-and-fast rule that a deep northerly or north-easterly, would bring temperatures low enough for falling and lying snow in the Newcastle area, and even mild winters tended to have one or two falls.  With the recent warming of the Arctic, however, northerlies and north-easterlies are not as reliable as they used to be, and the winters of 2013/14 and 2015/16 both passed by without anything of note on the ground.

      Cheers, TWS. This is the project I'll be working on, using drones, laser scanners and other fun toys in the Arctic! https://www.findaphd.com/search/projectdetails.aspx?PJID=72952


      We've had plenty of snow here this winter, but none of it stuck for more than a few hours. I'd say it's been several years since we've had widespread snow that's lasted more than a day in southern Ireland. I have to go hiking several times each winter to get my fix!
