Advantages Of Snow Measuring Instruments

By Amy Baker

Calculating the depth of ice needs to be conducted by a professional using the required equipment. Many factors such as the wind, rain and water content may make the exercise difficult if you do not have the required equipment. The specialist ought to have the required skills so as to use the snow measuring instruments adequately. Some guidelines are used in the exercise, and they have to match with the type of tools you are using.

There is the ice pit equipment that can be used for purposes of research or operational programs. They can be purchased individually or in kits. Purchasing them in kits is cheaper as compared to buying single units. It will allow you to get the highest values regarding depth, density, and temperature. It is favorable for individuals who are traveling for long distances while in the field as you can carry all you need.

The ice board is also important in the process. It has high-quality tubes that cannot be damaged by the climatic conditions. They can still be manipulated so that the professional can read the recordings without any efforts. The board is available with some other equipment. You as the observer will make a choice of what you require and what you do not.

The professional should possess a study kit that they can use whenever out there. They can easily write down the observations instead of memorizing all of them as they may forget. The purpose of this kit is to safely store the recordings so that you can counter check them later. The averages should be noted down as they will be used in the final general calculations.

The observer will also need pocket magnifiers and a microscope to help in observing the flakes. It makes observing the flakes more thrilling as it beautifies the crystals. Looking at them with the naked eye may not create that effect as with using the magnifier. The size has been magnified, and therefore you can observe the flakes to get a good idea of how they exactly look.

A depth sensor is a crucial tool that is a must for every observer. The deepness of the flakes must be gauged mostly due to the changes in the weather patterns. This tool ought to gauge a wider area and should not be affected by the weather fluctuations. It should work effectively repeatedly and still broadcast the result if need be. This makes the work of the specialist a walk in the park as he may not need to return to the station every time.

At the start of the freezing season, you ought to have a gauge that will average the water equivalent of the ice. The other recordings ought to be done on a daily basis of your schedule permit. If you are not busy at all, do the recording after every six hours to get accurate recordings.

Always take averages on clear fields as areas like under the tree will give you inaccurate measurements since the flakes accumulate on trees. This gives a false recording that may tamper with the calculated results. Freezing rain should not be recorded as flakes in your report.
