Abstract: This presentation is a review of the evolution of the measurement of snow depth using an acoustic (ultra sonic) sensor. Originally developed within the Hydrometeorology Division of the Canadian Atmospheric Environment Service, the sensor has undergone a series of design changes. Although the transducer has remained the same, the packaging and electronic design of the sensor is today quite different than the original sensor. Data from three sites will be presented to assist in showing the evolution and performance of the sensor. The data will show how the measurements produced by the sensor have improved and stabilized.
