Whether you view snow as beautiful or a winter-time annoyance, accurate snow observations are vital to the hydrological cycle. However, not only is taking measurements much more challenging than using a ruler to determine how much has fallen, but snow observations are sparse.

The Community Collaborative Rain, Hail, and Snow Network, CoCoRaHS, aims to provide high-quality precipitation data through a grassroots, non-profit, community-based network. Join us as we learn techniques CoCoRaHS has created for their observers on proper ways to take accurate snow measurements, including snowfall, snow depth, and snow-water equivalent.
