This dataset includes Snow Free Date(sfdy) for northern Alaska in GeoTiff format, covering the years 1980-2012. Snow Free Date is defined as day of the end of the core snow period(day of year). The core snow season is defined to be the longest period of continuous snow cover in each year. The dataset was generated by the Arctic LCC SNOWDATA: Snow Datasets for Arctic Terrestrial Applications project.“Day-of-year” (doy) output is expressed in Ordinal dates (“1” on 1 January, and “365” on 31 December). Dates have not been corrected for leap years. This output is appropriate for display purposes, as it is readily interpreted as calendar day of year. It is not recommended as input for analysis, as it may produce incorrect...

Daily precipitation, runoff (rain + snowmelt), snowfall, snow-water equivalent (SWE), and snowmelt, at a 100m spatial resolution for the period 1989 - 2011 for the Upper Deschutes River Basin (UDRB) study area and for 1989 - 2009 for the McKenzie River Basin (MRB) study area. For example, the UDRB modeling domain is 781 rows by 385 columns at 100-m grid spacing, and data are stored in 365-day water-year time periods, one for each of the 23 years in the study period. The data include climate-scenarios for the 'reference_climate' i.e. historical climate period, 't2' i.e. +2 degrees C added to each historical temperature record used as model forcing, 't2p10' i.e. +2 degrees C added to each historical temperature and...

PCIC's Regional Analysis Tool generates maps, plots and data describing projected future climate conditions for the Pacific and Yukon Region. It uses an ensemble of more than 15 Global Climate Model (GCM) and SRES emissions scenario combinations provided by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). The Regional Analysis Tool allows you to: select from a set of predefined regions and generate maps, plots and data pertaining to that region for a specific time horizon (e.g., 2050s, 2080s, etc.) define your own custom region and generate maps, plots, and data pertaining to the area you specify generate maps showing projected changes for a specific region under one or more GCMs, with included grid boxes...

Abstract (from http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2015JF003539/abstract): A quantitative understanding of snow thickness and snow water equivalent (SWE) on glaciers is essential to a wide range of scientific and resource management topics. However, robust SWE estimates are observationally challenging, in part because SWE can vary abruptly over short distances in complex terrain due to interactions between topography and meteorological processes. In spring 2013, we measured snow accumulation on several glaciers around the Gulf of Alaska using both ground- and helicopter-based ground-penetrating radar surveys, complemented by extensive ground truth observations. We found that SWE can be highly variable (40%...

Understanding snow conditions is key to developing a better understanding of hydrologic, biological, and ecosystem processes at work in northern Alaska. The required snow datasets currently do not exist at spatial or temporal scales needed by end users such as scientists, land managers, and policy makers. There are a wide variety of snow datasets that may be generated by this project. The list of desired datasets will be refined based on input from potential end users. However, outputs could include daily spatial distributions spanning the spatial and temporal domains of interest of the following variables: air temperature, wind speed and direction, relative humidity, surface (skin) temperature, incoming solar radiation,...
