Insight into the Research On a Snowfall Measurement Product! (credit: Meteorologist Sheldon Kusselson)
DISCUSSION: In light of the very recently concluded winter storm which impacted many parts of the north-central United States, here is a neat piece of research work which conducted by Meteorologist Sheldon Kusselson and others which collaborated with him. Note that this product is produced by microwave sensors onboard polar orbiting satellites that sense snow in the cloud at an average resolution of 25kms and then converts to a snow-water equivalent. Many meteorologists benefit from this particular product on a relatively consistent basis during forecasts concerning winter storms.
