SnowEx Meteorological Station Measurements from Grand Mesa, CO V001

Metadata Updated: December 6, 2023

This dataset contains meteorological data collected as part of the ongoing the NASA SnowEx mission, from five meteorological stations installed between 2016-2017 in Grand Mesa, Colorado, to provide supporting data for SnowEx field campaigns and forcing data for modeling. Each station collects a suite of meteorological data at a fixed geographic point, from varying heights above and below the surface elevation. Measured data include: air temperature, relative humidity, long and shortwave solar radiation, barometric pressure, soil moisture and temperature, and derived snow depth. The temporal data coverage varies between each station, but spans October 2016 to August 2022.

The dataset(s) contain air temperature and relative humidity (10ft and 20ft levels), 4-component radiation (shortwave, longwave), barometric pressure, soil-moisture and temperature (three depths), and a snow-depth product. Data coverage varies for each met station, but spans the time period of October 2016 – August, 2022. The data frequency is hourly and times are in UTC. The data is monotonic (no duplicate or mis-orderd timestamps) and steps have been taken to remove erroneous data. Periods of missing data are filled with NaN values. The scripts used to process raw data into the current format are available on the github page (
