Measuring winter precipitation and snow on the ground in northern polar regions
Measuring winter precipitation in cold and windy regions is recognized as a difficult task. Nonetheless, the accurate measurement of solid precipitation provides important input data for predicting snowmelt floods and avalanche danger and for monitoring climate change. The difficulties in measuring solid precipitation are associated with environmental factors and technological issues. ...
Real-time Snowpack Temperature Profiling at Alaska’s Turnagain Pass - Case Study
CNFAIC recognized a need in their instrumentation network to monitor temperature and snow depths along Tincan Ridge as they were seeing high instances of avalanches in this popular backcountry area. ...
EON2 CS2 The Last Goes and GPS Antenna You`ll Ever Need
The EON2 Antenna requires no assembly, and no aiming in most locations. Rugged by design, it is completely sealed for marine environments and dome-shaped for superior ice/snow shedding. Furthermore, it’s smaller, lighter and more durable than ...

Snow Drift Sensor
Extremely robust sensor to determine snow drift intensity. The sensing part of the instrument is a cylindrical, anti-abrasion, anti-adhesion and anti-rime coated tube supported by two strong stainless steel arms. The impact of drifting snow and the friction of laminar wind induce a change in internal acoustic pressure. The excitation by snow and wind is discriminated by a specific acoustic, ...
