SnowDATA: Snow Datasets for Arctic Terrestrial Applications

Understanding snow conditions is key to developing a better understanding of hydrologic, biological, and ecosystem processes at work in northern Alaska, but these data currently do not exist at spatial or temporal scales needed by end users. To address this need, the Arctic LCC and Alaska Climate Science Center have partnered with researchers from Colorado State University to produce retrospective datasets simulating snow conditions for much of northern Alaska.

The following snow products are provided: 1) First snow date 2) Last snow date 3) Snow free date 4) Snow up date 5) Total melt per day 6) Average 10m air temperature 7) Glacier melt 8) Total snow days 9) Snow depth 10) Snow density 11) Snow water equivalent depth 12) Solid precipitation 13) Rain on snow event 14) Rain precipitation 15) Total liquid water 16) Total precipitation 17) Snow days
