Abstract

This resource contains files required to retrieve precipitation accumulation (PREC), precipitation increment (PRCP), snow-adjusted precipitation increment (PRCPSA), snow water equivalent (WTEQ), and snow rain ratio (SNRR) from the SNOTEL network for a specified group of sites and a period of interest. A Jupyter Notebook (Main.ipynb) first reads the geographical information of SNOTEL sites (latitude and longitude values from the NRCS_SNOTEL_Locations_noAlaska.csv file) and gets other required parameters (including the start time, end time, and the state abbreviation), and then runs the python script (getData.py) to retrieve data.

The getData.py can be changed depending on the variable of your interest. For more details on what other variables are available, visit:
https://wcc.sc.egov.usda.gov/reportGenerator/
https://www.wcc.nrcs.usda.gov/web_service/AWDB_Web_Service_Reference.htm

This has been tested using CyberGIS-Jypyter for Water. To start working with these scripts, click on the Open With button on the top right and select CyberGIS-Jypyter for Water. From that page, open the Main.ipynb and follow the steps.
