WATER: Dataset of fresh snow properties observations at the temporary sampling plot in Qilian, in the Binggou watershed foci experimental area on Mar. 20, 2008 Chinese Version


The dataset of fresh snow properties observations was obtained at the temporary sampling plot in the Qilian county on Mar. 20, 2008. Those provide reliable data for retrieval of snow parameters from remote sensing approaches.

Observation items included:

(1) Snow parameters such as snow depth, snow grain size by the handheld microscope, and snow density by the snow shovel

(2) Fresh snow albedo by the total radiometer

(3) Fresh snow spectrum by ASD

Two files including raw data and preprocessed data were archived.
