The ASO L4 Lidar Snow Depth 3m UTM Grid data set has been updated from a basic to a standard level of service at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). Increased data usability and usage support is now available, as well as a detailed user guide. Please see our “Adding clarity to NSIDC data support with new Level of Service (LoS) model” article for more information.
This data set contains 3 m gridded snow depths derived from airborne light detection and ranging, or lidar, measurements of surface elevations acquired between 08 February 2016 and 16 August 2017. The data were collected as part of the NASA/JPL Airborne Snow Observatory (ASO) aircraft survey campaigns.
