Dear Colleague,

The SnowEx17 Boise State University Terrestrial Laser Scanner (TLS) Point Cloud, Version 1 data set is now available from the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC).

This data set contains terrestrial laser scanner (TLS) LiDAR point cloud data collected as part of the 2017 SnowEx campaign in Grand Mesa, Colorado between 26 September 2016 and 25 February 2017. Data were collected during snow-off (September 2016) and snow-on (February 2017) conditions at both open and forested locations. Multiple scans were conducted at each site and registered together using common targets. Each point contains X, Y, and Z coordinates (Easting, Northing, and Elevation), as well as intensity (i). These data can be used to determine snow depth and explore the interactions between snow and vegetation.

The NSIDC DAAC provides access to documentation and the data from:
