ALS-based snow depth and canopy height maps from flights in 2017 (Grisons, CH and Grand Mesa, CO)

This dataset includes snow depth, canopy height and terrain elevation maps of forest stands in the Grisons (CH) and at Grand Mesa (CO,USA) derived from airborne lidar. All data were presented and analyzed in the paper 'Revisiting Snow Cover Variability and Canopy Structure within Forest Stands: Insights from Airborne Lidar Data' (Mazzotti et al., currently under review in Water Resources Research). Data were acquired i) within a pilot mission of NASA's Airborne Snow Observatory in the Swiss Alps in March 2017 and ii) during NASA’s SnowEx campaign at Grand Mesa in February 2017. Snow depth maps are available for two dates separated by approx.1 week, and include an area of ca. 0.5km2 for each of the three sites Davos, Engadine and Grand Mesa.
