This is the most recent version of these data.
Version Summary
Initial release

Overview

This data contains snow depth measurements derived from time-lapse images collected by cameras placed around Grand Mesa, CO at 29 sites coincident with other SnowEx 2020 measurements. The field view of all cameras includes a 3.049 m, (10 ft) vertical pole that was painted red with a yellow top to serve as a reference for quantifying snow depth. The time-lapse images are archived separately at NSIDC (SNEX20_TLI).
