Stony Brook University's Multi-Angle Snowflake Camera will enable researchers to compile information from photographs of individual flakes, with a goal of better snowstorm prediction.  The camera was installed in December as part of a three year grant from the National Science Foundation.  Stony Brook's School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is collaborating with the Department of Marine, Earth and Atmospheric Sciences at North Carolina State.
