Paper Abstract

Snow characterization measurements obtained during SNOW-ONE-A and SNOW-ONE-B are presented. These consist of data that were acquired by the snowrate-meter, fall-velocity-indicator and snow-structure-recorder instruments. These instruments were previously described in the PSIE Sub-session on "Electro-Optical/Infrared Systems and Effects"(Plank, Matthews and Berthel). E/0 correlations between snow rate and extinction/transmittance are illustrated, as are the correlations between snow rate and liquid water content, which are related by the fall velocity of the snow crystals. Snow rate, fall velocity, and snow structure data are presented.
