Measurement Methods Used
WMO Technical Regulations
Other relevant measurement method documents:
Since no standards in the aeolian process measurements exists, it is difficult to compare measurements taken in different regions. A wide variety of instruments is used. In the present case, data are provided by snow particle counter S7 (SPC-7). See (Trouvilliez et al. 2014) for more details. As the snow height varies throughout the winter, the height of sensor above the snow cover is provided for each measure.
Are the data quality controlled? yes
How are the data accessible? FTP, an existing data center
Data availability (may depend on the variable measured): delayed less than one year
