Changes to Web Site – Standardizing Terminology and Labels
We are standardizing terminology and labeling of fields on the report forms to help reduce confusion, especially when it comes to reporting snow and snow-related measurements.
In addition, we are adding two calculated values to the observation confirmation screen (what you see after you submit your observation) and to the data listings.
These calculated values are Snow to Liquid Ratio (SLR) and Snowpack Density. The values are not anything observers have to calculate. They will be calculated from the values entered as part of the observation.
You will also see this terminology used on the CoCoRaHS interactive map and the mobile apps in the near future.
We are working to incorporate these changes into our training materials in the coming months. We have a Glossary of the new terminology for you to refer to.
