Data sets

A GNSS-based snow depth data set over northern China (GSnow-CHINA v1.0, 12h/24h, 2013-2022) Wan, W., Zhang, J., Dai, L., Liang, H., Liu, B., Guo, Z., Hu, H., Yang, T., and Zhao, L.

Short summary
The GSnow-CHINA data set is a snow depth data set developed using the two Global Navigation Satellite System station networks in China. It includes snow depth of 24, 12, and 2/3/6 h records, if possible, for 80 sites from 2013–2022 over northern China (25–55° N, 70–140° E). The footprint of the data set is ~ 1000 m2, and it can be used as an independent data source for validation purposes. It is also useful for regional climate research and other meteorological and hydrological applications.
