Analysis of the nearby Mesa Lakes Snotel data for Water Years 2006-2017 snowmelt seasons showing date and quantity of peak SWE, days from peak SWE to “snow all gone” (SAG), total additional precipitation after the date of peak SWE, an “adjusted” mean daily rate of snowmelt adding the additional precipitation to the peak SWE total, the maximum five-day moving average of daily melt, and the mean air temperature over the entire snowmelt period, from peak SWE to SAG.  POR refers to the snotel's entire period of record. The Mesa Lakes Snotel site is partially shaded by surrounding forest and lies 600’ lower in elevation than the Grand Mesa CODOS snowpit site.


Our Snowmelt Excel Workbook for Mesa Lakes contains spreadsheets for each year, including a summary aggregating all years. See our Snotel Dataset page for downloadable Excel files for each CODOS site, and an "All CODOS Sites Aggregated" Excel workbook containing spreadsheets for Water Years 2006-2017 and a summary of all years combined.
