Title: End-of-Winter Snow Depth, Temperature, Density and SWE Measurements at Teller Road Site, Seward Peninsula, Alaska, 2016-2018

Abstract

Measurements of snow properties were taken during three consecutive years between 2016 and 2018 at the NGEE Arctic Teller field site. This dataset contains spatially distributed values of snow depth, integrated snow pack density, snow water equivalent (SWE), temperature at the snow surface and at the bottom of the snow pack, and snow density as a function of depth from top of snow pack. Data was collected toward the end of the winter season, typically in late March or early April, when snow pack would be near its maximum. In 2016, snow depth measurements were taken using either a thaw probe or avalanche probe. In 2017 and 2018 a Snow-Hydro MagnaProbe (http://www.snowhydro.com/products/column2.html) was used to improve collection efficiency and enhance spatial coverage.
