PRIMET, CENTRAL, VANILLA, & UPLO
GOAL: To investigate the precipitation regimes between the benchmark met stations, specifically to investigate the suspected tendency for the lower elevation sites to receive more winter precipitation than the upper elevation sites.
Data used for this study was processed from original raw data from the met sites, and visually assessed for quality. Flags were assigned to every data point deemed questionable or otherwise worthy of note. Charts are presented here in two sets; the first set of charts shows graphs of all processed data for the time periods, while data for the second set was filtered of all flagged data. Click here for time periods of processed data used and a list of flag codes (this study will be updated when data processing is brought up-to-date).
PRIMET was used as a representation of the headquarters area instead of CS2MET; the precipitation regimes for both are similar and can be viewed here.
