Snow measurements on the ground by station in Canada (1983-2007)

The data consists of daily ruler measurements of snow depth taken by Meteorological Service of Canada observers and archived as daily element in the National Climate Data Archive. The depth data also include a substantial number of daily and weekly snow depth observations rescued from paper records as part of a CRYSYS-sponsored data rescue project. The depth data extend from the late 1800s to early 1996 in the database, although most of the data are in the period after 1950. A detailed quality control procedure was applied to flag suspicious values and fill missing data. The data can also be viewed in graphical form by using the Graph link in the Search Tool field. Both current weekly conditions and a time series monthly data can be displayed.
