ClimateBasis Zackenberg - Precipitation - Snow depth (m)

Snow depth - 180min sample (m) Precipitation:Precipitation ClimateBasis Zackenberg:The ClimateBasis programme monitors climate and hydrology in Zackenberg, Kobbefjord and Disko (Qeqertarsuaq) and is run by Asiaq - Greenland Survey. The collected data build base-line information on climate variability and trends for all the other sub-programmes within GEM and serve as a trustworthy foundation for adaptation strategies for the Greenlandic society. The stations are embedded in Asiaq’s extensive climate and hydrology monitoring network. Furthermore, the run-off data is delivered to the World Hydrological Cycle Observing System (WHYCOS) and the Global Runoff Data Centre (GRDC) networks.

  • Variable name: Snow depth (m)  Variable description: Snow depth measured on two proximal climate stations as a 3min average every 3 hours (m). The double masted climate station is located north of the station at 44 m a.s.l.. The timeseries starts in 1997. Quality control is performed on both datasets from the double mast system. The combined time series is calculated as an average of the 2 sensors, or if data is missing from 1 sensor the other used in conjunction with a regression.
