[42] Snow Telemetry (SNOTEL) and Snow Course Data and Products, Natural Resources Conservation Service and National Water Climate Center.
Next, we constructed a model based on snow accumulation using data from Snotel sites for each study area, and summing the total accumulation for the 3-d period up to the day a deer used that location (or random location).
Snowpack Telemetry (SNOTEL) gauges, operated by the Natural Resources Conservation Service, are also located around the Payette basin and provide long-term measurements of precipitation in the region; however, their measurement resolution is only 2.5 mm.
The primary daily SWE record was obtained from the Natural Resource Conservation Service, which has operated the SNOTEL automated network of snowpack monitoring sites in the WUS since 1978 (http://www.wcc.nrcs.usda.gov [f.sub.snow]/).
Second, seeds sown in 2007 for transplantation into seedling plots suffered low germination rates, potentially because of the hot dry weather that summer (based on SNOTEL data for nearby Schofield Pass, CO).
We compared mean maximum daily summer (June-August) temperatures from 24 and 14 Snotel stations in the northern and southern portions of actual and potential moose range in Utah, respectively.
His Snowmelt Runoff Model (SRM) uses climate-change algorithms, imagery of snowpacks from National Aeronautics and Space Administration satellites, and data from ground-based SNOTEL sensors in 11 western states to measure water levels.
To minimize undercatch, the SCAS analysis preferentially used shielded SNOTEL gauge data (where available) over National Weather Service unshielded gauge data (see Simpson et al., 2005 for details).
Proximal SNOTEL sites operated by the USDA and the State of Montana are situated at elevations high enough to provide the needed maximum and minimum temperature and snowdepth data to estimate rate and timing of ice-margin loss as observed in the aerial photos.
The NASMD, developed and constructed at the Department of Geography's Climate Science Lab at Texas A&M University, provides a harmonized and quality-controlled SM data set for the entire continent of North America from a variety of networks, such as ARM Southern Great Plains, CRN, OK Mesonet, and SNOTEL [26].
These data are then combined with SWE measurements taken by some National Weather Service cooperative observers and from extensive automated SWE data collected by the Snow Telemetry (SNOTEL) system [of the U.S.
