SnowEx17 Laser Snow Microstructure Specific Surface Area Data, Version 1
Data set id:
This is the most recent version of these data.
This data set reports vertical profiles of snow reflectance, specific surface area (SSA), and optical equivalent diameter (grain size) at Grand Mesa, Colorado, USA, a snow-covered, forested study site about 40 miles east of the city of Grand Junction, CO. Reflectance was measured in situ using a 1310 nm integrating sphere laser device and converted to SSA and optical equivalent diameter.
