FMI Snow Depth Measurement Citizen Science Program

Since 1919, FMI has organized citizen-based monitoring of the year-to-year changing snow coverage in Finland. Since 2010 number of participants declining rapidly. Program closed by 2018. The dataset comprises snowpack depth measurements in open fields and forested (pine) areas, both around mid-January (since 1947) and mid-March of the year. The data collection may enable a better understanding of snow cover and climatic changes. Most data and analyses are on paper only, stored at the FMI's archives.
