This dataset contains the NCAR (National Center for Atmospheric Research) and Idaho Power Company's (IPC) precipitation gauge data from 12 different sites during the SNOWIE (Seeded and Natural Orographic Wintertime Clouds: The Idaho Experiment) project. Data were collected from 7 January 2017 to 16 March 2017. The data frequency of IPC Geonor gauges is approximately 1/15 minute, and the frequency of NCAR gauges at Clear Creek and Silver Creek is 1 minute. These data are in readable ASCII text format. Data have been quality controlled. Please refer to the readme for more information.
