Snow Depth, Precipitation Station, North Dakota
Ten precipitation stations were set up to collect precipitation data (including rainfall/snowfall and snow depth measurements) across 6 USGS HUC10 watersheds. The ultrasonic snow depth sensor was utilized to obtain continuous and non-contact snow depth measurements (Ultra Sonic Snow Depth Sensor (USH-8), Hydrological Services America). Data accuracy is within 0.1% due to the integrated temperature compensation and filtering of snow and rainfall using intelligent spectrum analysis. However, the sensor does pick up any vegetation beneath the sensor. Thus, the snow depth data were processed. See the ReadMe file for complete details located in the zip file of snow depth data.
