Description

This dataset includes data from late-March snow surveys and hourly digital camera images from two study areas within the Wrangell St Elias National Park, Alaska. These data comprise snow density, stratigraphy, and temperature profiles obtained by snow pits; and snow depth data obtained from transects between snow pits. Daily snow depths, adjacent to each pit, were derived from hourly camera images of snow stakes placed adjacent to each pit. These data were collected to constrain and validate a physically-based, spatially-distributed snow evolution model used to simulate snow conditions in Dall sheep habitat. The two study areas are both located within the Jacksina Park Unit (JPU). The first study area, surveyed in 2017, included the northern end of Jaeger Mesa and an area near Rambler mine in the North East of the JPU. The second study area, surveyed in 2018, was within the upper watershed of Pass Creek in the North of the JPU. The remote cameras operated from September 2016 to August 2017 on Jaeger Mesa/Rambler Mine and from September 2017 to July 2018 at Pass Creek.
