SUNY-Oswego Mobile Surface Snow Observations Data


This dataset contains SUNY Oswego Mobile Surface Snow Observations Data collected from 7 December 2013 to January 2014. SUNY Oswego positioned 1-4 snow teams in most long lake-axis-parallel (LLAP) lake-effect events observed during the Ontario Winter Lake-effect Systems (OWLeS) project. Teams were positioned along the most intense axis of the forecasted band position and recorded snow fall depth and liquid water content (LWC) at hourly and 6-hourly periods. They also measured current conditions with a Kestrel mobile weather station and any other notable observations (e.g., hydrometeor type). These data are in Excel format (xlsx).
