Snow Drift Station - Flowcapt

The FlowCapt is an ultra-robust instrument measuring solid particle acoustic mass - flux intensities (g m‾ ² s‾ ¹) and wind speeds (m s‾ ¹). It was deployed at Gotschnagrat (LON: 46.859 LAT: 9.849). The vertical tube with a length of 1 m monitors snowdrift and snow-blowing; and is mounted at a height between 0.1 an 1.1 m above snow surface. The time within each data set is given in UTC+1.
