Snow Depth Measurements from Barrow, Alaska, 1994

Summary

This data set contains snow depth measurements (cm) taken at the Arctic System Science (ARCSS) 1-m grid near Barrow, Alaska, on May 8, 1994. A grid spacing of 100 m was marked with wooden stakes. Snow pack depth was then measured by probing at the stakes prior to meltout. The grid yielded an 11x11 array with 121 data points. Note to users: This data set previously contained soil temperature data from Happy Valley and Barrow, Alaska. For data and information on soil temperatures, visit the companion dataset.
