"NOHRSC - The National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center"

Carrie Olheiser
NOAA/National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center (NOHRSC)
Chanhassen, MN


The National Operational Hydrologic Remote Sensing Center (NOHRSC) operates the Snow Data Assimilation System (SNODAS), a sophisticated snow model that produces hourly estimates of snowpack distribution and characteristics for the continental United States and southern Canada.

This webinar will talk about the SNODAS model, the observations that are incorporated into the model including satellite imagery, airborne remote sensing, and most importantly, ground based observations like those collected by the CoCoRaHS network.   We will also explore NOHRSC’s products and  services and the importance of the adequate and accurate CoCoRaHS observations in providing the best estimates of snow water equivalent.
