Cosmic-Ray Neutron Data at the Weisssee Snow Research Site


Cosmic-Ray Neutron data for the period 2014/02/25 to 2016/06/29. The Hydroinnova CRS1000 detector was placed approximately 2.5 m above snow-free ground. All neutron count data are normalized to the second device used from 10/2014 but are not corrected or processed otherwise. Auxiliary data include relative humidity and air pressure recorded by the sensor. Further meteorological data can be found in Schöber et al. (2019). The NMDB Nest application ( can be used to download neutron monitor data for the incoming neutron correction. The corrections needed to account for atmospheric and incoming neutron effects are described in Zreda et al. (2012, doi:10.5194/hess-16-4079-2012). Further information regarding the location and the use of the data to derive snow water equivalent is found in Schattan et al. (2017).
