Observation: Turnagain

Location: Tincan Snow Study Area

Route & General Observations

The snow sensor and thermistor string were raised to 3.9 m above the ground surface. The measured depth of the snowpack at noon was 240 cm at the depth sensor. The sensor has been recalibrated to reflect that reading following the raising of the sensor. There had been a break in the depth data for the previous evening, but as of 6 AM 1/3, the data appears to be transmitting correctly.
