MS001

Attribute: SWE_METHOD

code    description      
DEPTH    Snow depth only is measured; no snow course calculations of SWE; snow depth is typically an average of sample core depths taken along a transect, or an average depth taken at snow stakes positioned around a snow pillow      
NO_MEAS    No measurements of snow water equivalence or snow depth are conducted      
PCOURSE    Snow pillow course is used to calculate SWE; course consists of four snow cores taken at or near each corner of the snow pillow      
SCOURSE    Station snow course is used to calculate SWE; course consists of five snow cores taken along a transect near the station      
STAKES    SWE is calculated based on depth measured at four snow stakes positioned at each corner of the snow pillow and the snow density measured along the snow course transect
