SnowEx20 Grand Mesa IOP BSU Multi-polarization 1 GHz GPR CMP Raw, Version 1

This data set was collected during the SnowEx 2020 Intensive Observation Period (IOP) in Grand Mesa, Colorado. These data contain the geolocated, unprocessed, common midpoint (CMP) gathers from a Sensors & Software pulseEKKO PRO 1 GHz multi-polarization ground penetrating radar (GPR). Multi-offset gathers were collected by placing antennas on the snow surface and expanding the antenna separation about a fixed midpoint out to a 2 m offset. CMP gathers were collected in HH and HV polarizations.
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).
These data can be used to estimate snow depth, snow density, and snow water equivalent (SWE).
