Water Content in Snowpack

Hey Buzz,

I am wondering if anyone has experience measuring the water content in snowpack. If anyone has a paper or methods to share that would be fantastic. I am looking to measure snowpack water content on the Harding Icefield in Alaska.

Take a core sample and then weight it. That is what the NRCS does when they do a manual survey.
