The Japanese Society of Snow and Ice

Welcome to the center of research activities on glaciology (snow and ice) in Japan.

The society was established in 1939 as "Japanese Association of Snow and Ice" and reformed to "the Japanese Society of Snow and Ice" in 1955. It has obtained non-profit corporation status from the Ministry of Education, Science and Culture (now the Ministry of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology) in 1993.


Special Interest Groups:

  • Data Center for Glacier Research
  • Polar Glaciology
  • Ground Freezing
  • Avalanche
  • Snow and Ice Physics
  • Satellite Glaciology
  • Snow and Ice Engineering
  • Snow and Ice Chemistry
  • Glaciological Meteorology and Hydrology
  • Blowing Snow
