OCLC Number: Notes: On cover: Federal-State-private cooperative snow surveys, Prepared in cooperation with Oregon Agricultural Experiment Station and. Oregon Snow Survey Program The NRCS Snow Survey Program provides mountain snowpack data and streamflow forecasts for the western United States.

Common applications of snow survey products include water supply management, flood control, climate modeling, recreation, and conservation planning. Author(s) Water Resources Program: Description: Summary of snow survey measurements in the State of Washington — inclusive. Water Supply Bulletin 13 () presents a summary of snowfall measurement data from an established network of snow courses (stations) distributed throughout Washington State, collected from Established in by the California Legislature, the California Cooperative Snow Surveys (CCSS) program is a partnership of more than 50 state, federal, and private agencies.

The cooperating agencies not only share a pool of expert staff but share in funding the program, which collects, analyzes and disseminates snow data from more than snow courses and snow sensors located.

What is a Snow Survey and Who Uses It. So far this January, the region has experienced alternating periods of cold, snowy weather and warm, wet weather.

The rain and warmth have caused snow to melt and ice to move on area waterways, leading to an increased threat of flooding. Ice jam in Warrensburg, NY, on January Photo by Vince Spadaro.

The goal of the snow survey is to obtain an accurate measure of SWE at predetermined locations: snow courses. Snow courses typically have between five and ten measurement points spread o ut over one or more straight-line transects.

Transects can be short, or several hundred meters in length. Additional Physical Format: Online version: California. Department of Water Resources. Snow survey measurements through Sacramento] (OCoLC) Snow water equivalent (SWE) is a common snowpack measure-ment.

It is the amount of water contained within the snowpack. It can be thought of as the depth of waterthat would theoretically Extracting a core sample of the snowpack using a snow tube. Using a snow scale to measure snow water equivalent of mountain snowpack.

Snow Measurements and Water Supply Forecasting Snow depth and snow water content data have been collected and dis-seminated throughout the Western United States for over years.

Early snow survey and water supply data were gathered through the ef-forts of university scientists, begin-ning with the work of Dr. James E. Church. Plan your next Oregon powder day or ski vacation with our snow report, 3-day hourly weather, day snow forecast, cams, and snowfall history.

Measuring Snow Step: Observe Step: Report Water Equivalent of New Snow: Melt the amount of new snow that fell in your gauge during the last 24 hours. Measure the amount of liquid to the nearest hundredth of an inch (such as _).

Northeast River Basin February 5, Gamma snow water equivalent measurements and ice jam photos will be collected throughout the region.

-M = Missing data. * = Analysis may not provide a valid measure of conditions. N/A = Not available. C = Conditional only years of data available.

R = Rough less than 10 years of data available. If the Basin Index (%) percent value is flagged as potentially invalid care should be taken to evaluate if the value is representative of conditions in the basin.

Record the measurement to the nearest tenth of an inch; e.g. inches. Keep track of all your measurements for the duration of the storm so you can report the storm total amount.

After you record the measurement, clear off the snow board (then place it on top of the snow), or whatever surface you have used, so it is ready for more snow!

The NRCS Snow Survey is the federal program that measures snow and provides streamflow forecasts and snowpack data for communities, water managers and recreationalists across the West.

In Oregon, snow measurements are collected from 81 SNOTEL sites, 42 manually measured snow courses, and 26 aerial markers.– Snow falls and melts continuously on the board. In this case, if the snow never reaches a depth of a tenth of an inch, then a trace of snowfall is recorded.

– Snow has blown or drifted onto the snowboard. In this case, take several measurements from around the yard where the snow has not drifted, being careful only to measure new snow.
