The following figures are plots of snow pit parameters, including snow depth, temperature, hardness, density, grain size, and type.
The density profile is in blue in each figure (axis at bottom), temperature
is in red (top axis), and hand hardness is in yellow (scale in black below density
scale). The grain size and type are given on the left-hand side of the figure, with
the size in mm and the type:
+ = new snow
\ = fragments
- = ice lense
 = facets
* = facets turning to rounds
* = rounds
o = melt-freeze
