Group: Summary

   This data set contains snow depth, Snow Water Equivalent (SWE), and forest 
   cover characteristics for sites at the Hubbard Brook Experimental Forest in 
   northern New Hampshire. Measurements were made at 26 sampling sites on 4 March 
   and 1 April 2009.The data were collected as part of a collaborative research 
   project on isotopic exchange in snow. The project aims to develop a 
   quantitative understanding of the processes active in isotopic exchange 
   between snow/firn and water vapor, which is important to Antarctic ice core 
   interpretation. Data are in Microsoft Excel (.xls) format. The data set also 
   includes maps showing site locations in Joint Photography Experts Group (.jpg) 
   format.

   Access to this data set is currently restricted by the principle investigator. 
   Please contact NSIDC User Services for more 
   information.
