SnowEx17 Laser Snow Microstructure Specific Surface Area Data V001

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set reports vertical profiles of snow reflectance, specific surface area (SSA), and optical equivalent diameter (grain size) at Grand Mesa, Colorado, USA, a snow-covered, forested study site about 40 miles east of the city of Grand Junction, CO. Reflectance was measured in situ using a 1310 nm integrating sphere laser device and converted to SSA and optical equivalent diameter.
