  • Abstract
    This data set contains 15-min snow depth observations for two study sites on Grand Mesa, CO, USA, acquired as part of NASA's 2017 SnowEx campaign. The data were recorded using two arrays of Judd Communications Ultrasonic Depth Sensors, configured as a TLS K footprint on the west side of the mesa and a TLS N footprint in the east. The sensors were positioned to represent three primary vegetation conditions: open-canopy; canopy-edge; and closed-canopy. A total of 10 and 7 sensors recorded usable data at the west and east sites, respectively, from the beginning of the snow season in November 2016 through the end in June 2017. These data can be used for a variety of purposes, including: model forcing, calibration, and validation; evaluation of airborne and satellite remote sensing data; to analyze how vegetation affects snow accumulation and ablation.
