Abstract

We provide data of a case study from the GNSS station Wettzell, Germany (WTZR). This data set contains snow depth derived from GNSS data using reflectometry. It covers a time period from July 1, 2012 to July 1, 2015 and gives the integral snow depth over an area of about 150 by 30 m. The data are daily averages based on daily measurements from 4 different satellites. The GNSS derived snow depth was validated by observations from ultrasonic sensors (US). The detailed description of the processing, the evaluation with US and the discussion of the results is described in Vey et al. (2016). The data are provided in ASCII format with four colums:
GNSS data (file Vey-et-al-2016-GNSS_2012_15.txt): (1) year (YEAR) (2) day of the year (DOY) (3) snow depth (SD cm) from GNSS (4) accuracy, root mean square error (RMSE cm)
Ultrasonic Sensor data (file Vey-et-al-2016-US_2012_15..txt): (1) year (YEAR) (2) day of the year (DOY) (3) SD_US_pillow (cm) snow depth from the US sensor located above snow pillow (4) SD_US_SPA(cm) snow depth from the US sensor located at the snow pack analyzer

      • Summary
        • Abstract: We provide data of a case study from the GNSS station Wettzell, Germany (WTZR). This data set contains snow depth derived from GNSS data using reflectometry. It covers a time period from July 1, 2012 to July 1, 2015 and gives the integral snow depth over an area of about 150 by 30 m. The data are daily averages based on daily measurements from 4 different satellites. The GNSS derived snow depth was validated by observations from ultrasonic sensors (US). The detailed description of the processing, the evaluation with US and the discussion of the results is described in Vey et al. (2016). The data are provided in ASCII format with four colums: GNSS data (file Vey-et-al-2016-GNSS_2012_15.txt): (1) year (YEAR) (2) day of the year (DOY) (3) snow depth (SD cm) from GNSS (4) accuracy, root mean square error (RMSE cm) Ultrasonic Sensor data (file Vey-et-al-2016-US_2012_15..txt): (1) year (YEAR) (2) day of the year (DOY) (3) SD_US_pillow (cm) snow depth from the US sensor located above snow pillow (4) SD_US_SPA(cm) snow depth from the US sensor located at the snow pack analyzer
