Abstract: The Snow Pack Analysing System is an automatic in-situ measurement system to determine the characteristics of snow covers. Measurements of the complex impedance along flat ribbon sensors in combination with a snow depth sensor result in the snow density, the snow water equivalent and the contents of ice and liquid water in the snow. The data values are recorded during the complete snow cover cycle from the accumulation until the melt off.
Keywords: snow density, snow water equivalent, liquid water content, in-situ measurement
