  • This data resource contains 9 files, created as part of the work "Spatio-temporal Patterns of High Mountain Asia's Snowmelt Season Identified with an Automated Snowmelt Detection Algorithm, 1987-2016" by T. Smith, B. Bookhagen, and A. Rheinwalt ( Full description of the methods can be found in the published paper. Data tracks the onset, end, and length of the snowmelt period in High Mountain Asia over the period 1987-2016. Three HDF files (.h5) containing Snowmelt Onset, End, and Period lengths for 1987-2016 (shape 111 x 81 x 29). Numbers are provided relative to October First, previous year (ie, Snowmelt onset in 1988 is Onset + Oct 1, 1987). Six TIF files, showing the average Snowmelt Onset, End and Period and Trends in the same three variables. Data format is GeoTIFF.
