GLEES (Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site) Snow Depth Data Measured Annually at Peak Accumulation from 2005 to 2014


Point measurements of snow depth data were collected at approximately peak snow accumulation each winter for a 10-year period from 2005 to 2014 (2005-04-20; 2006-05-02; 2007-04-17; 2008-04-24; 2009-04-30; 2010-05-06; 2011-04-28; 2012-04-10; 2013-05-02; 2014-05-01) around the West Glacier Lake Watershed at GLEES (Glacier Lakes Ecosystem Experiments Site) (41.37255627, -106.2676067; 41.38350614, -106.2505978). Data were collected as part of the research by Dr. Douglas M. Hultstrand (; and others. Snow depth was measured with an anodized aluminum depth probe and the location was measured with a hand-held Garmin Global Positioning System (GPS) unit. The data were collected by the Colorado State University (CSU) in conjunction with the United States Department of Agriculture U.S. Forest Service Rocky Mountain Research Station.
