Precipitation Scaling Data Set (Vögeli et al., Frontiers)

Dataset (Model input, snow distribution and validation) for the precipitation scaling paper, which should be cited along with the data set citation.

This data is useful for distributed hydrological modelling or other tasks that involve the study of snow distribution and precipitation in the high Alpine.

The format of the data is for Alpine3D ( model runs but other models could be used, too.

Dataset is provided as a single zip file. The archive contains two directories, the valuable distributed snow depth maps for the landscape Davos and the simulation input. The archive also contains the file: "ReadMeMetadataDataSetPrecipitationScaling" which explains the data structure.
