WATER: Dataset of snow density measurements in the Binggou watershed foci experimental area on Dec. 6 and Dec. 10, 2007 during the pre-observation period Chinese Version


The dataset of snow density measurements was obtained in the Binggou watershed foci experimental area on Dec. 6 and Dec. 10, 2007 during the pre-observation period, to survey the snow layer and acquire the snow density for retrieval and modeling from remote sensing approaches.

Observation items included:

(1) Snow layer density: measured by snow shovel weighing method. Each 10cm was a unit.

(2) Snow density, snow depth, snow temperature, snow-soil interface temperature, and snow grain size in BG-A.

Measured were carried out in BG-A on Dec. 6, 2007, and in BG-B, BG-C and BG-D on Dec. 10, 2007. The dataset includes raw data and processed data plus GPS and calibration data for the snow shovel.
