Dear readers, please note that Business Insider will be sunsetting our Indonesia edition at the end of June 2017. Thereafter, all visitors based in Indonesia will be redirected automatically to our BI Singapore site. You will still be able to return to our other BI editions using our edition picker should you choose. We will continue publishing what you need to know on our Singapore and Malaysian editions with a regional focus. Thanks for reading!
SnowEx — a NASA-led research campaign — will be spending the next five years studying how much snow is on the ground worldwide at any given time. This massive undertaking will help scientists better understand how much liquid water is contained within snow and how viable snow is as a resource of liquid water on our planet for drinking, agriculture, and hydropower.
