Pluvio Snow Sensor at GCPEx
The Pluvio snow sensor
The Pluvio sensor that weighs snow that falls into it. This provides a measure of how much water is in the falling snow.

Note the metal “double fencing” around the instrument. This reduces inaccuracies in the measurements due to blowing snow. Photo taken 7 February 2012.
