SnowEx17 Laser Snow Microstructure Specific Surface Area data set now available

The SnowEx17 Laser Snow Microstructure Specific Surface Area data set is now available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). This data set, obtained as part of the NASA SnowEx 2017 field campaign, reports vertical profiles of snow reflectance, specific surface area (SSA), and optical equivalent diameter (grain size) for 95 locations at Grand Mesa, Colorado, USA, a snow-covered, forested study site about 40 miles east of Grand Junction. Reflectance was measured in situ using a 1310 nm integrating sphere laser device and then converted to SSA and optical equivalent diameter.
