  <dc:description>Auxiliary files, code, and data for paper published in The Cryosphere:

Observed snow depth trends in the European Alps 1971 to 2019


Auxiliary files: Auxiliary figures to the paper (time series showing the consistency of averaging monthly mean snow depth of stations within 500 m elevation bins; times of seasonal snow depth and snow cover duration indices). Time series comparing spatial statistical gap filling from paper to gap filling using snow depth assimilation into Crocus snow model (only for subset of stations in the French Alps) Plots of monthly time series of snow depth, for each station. Aggregate results from spatial consistency (statistical simulation using neighboring stations), and time series of observed versus simulated monthly snow depths.


Code (working copy, not cleaned, all written in R statistical software):

	to read in the different data sources
	to do quality checks and data processing
	to perform statistical analyses as in paper
	to produce figures and tables as in paper



	&gt; 2000 stations from Austria, Germany, France, Italy, Switzerland, and Slovenia
	Daily stations snow depth and depth of snowfall, as .zips, grouped by data provider. Information on column content is provided in "data_daily_00_column_names_content.txt".
	Monthly stations mean snow depth, sum of depth of snowfall, maximum snow depth, days with snow cover (1-100cm thresholds), as .zips, grouped by data provider. Information on column content is provided in "data_monthly_00_column_names_content.txt".
	Meta data (name, latitude, longitude, elevation) in "meta_all.csv", along with an interactive map "meta_interactive_map.html", and column information in "meta_00_column_names_content.txt".
