Alpine Level Snow Survey, Gros Morne National Park.
As part of a research study into the climate and weather of Gros Morne National
Park, Newfoundland, a survey of snow cover conditions on the alpine summit area of Big Level
plateau, at elevations near 750 metres, is undertaken at the time of maximum
snow depth in late winter-early spring.

the snow depth and water content at points along a survey line.
