Gordon Gulch - Snow Pits - Snow Pit Density - SWE (GG_SN_Array) (2008-2017)

IDs vary on year, Group ID GGL_SN_Array


Snow density, snow grain and snow chemistry data is collected weekly to bi-weekly during snowpack season to characterize the stratigraphy, SWE (snow water equivalent) and chemistry of snow pits excavated from various sites within the Boulder Creek CZO watershed. Minimum depth of 30 cm established for analysis.
