SnowEx20 Grand Mesa IOP BSU 1 GHz Multi-polarization GPR CMP Snow Water Equivalent V001

This data set was collected during the SnowEx 2020 Intensive Observation Period (IOP) in Grand Mesa, Colorado. These data contain snow water equivalent (SWE) estimates. SWE is derived from Sensors & Software pulseEKKO PRO 1 GHz multi-polarization ground penetrating radar (GPR) two-way travel times. Data were collected at three locations around Grand Mesa IOP snow pits 2N12 and 1S8 (see DOI: 10.5067/DUD2VZEVBJ7S for more details on Grand Mesa IOP snow pits). Data at snow pit 2N12 were acquired on the groomed snowmobile road (CMP1), in the fresh snow behind the snow pit wall (CMP2), and in the right rut of the SUSV track (CMP3). Data at snow pit 1S8 were acquired in the right rut of the SUSV track (CMP1), in the left rut of the SUSV track (CMP2), and in the fresh snow behind the snow pit wall (CMP3). The raw version of these data (DOI: 10.5067/CL5ZRBCEF8G3) are also archived at NSIDC.
