ASO – Airborne Snow Observatory

Thursday, August 1, 2019

ASO performed snow surveys of the Kings River Basin on 27-29 August.  We expect to complete processing and delivery of the Level 4 snow depth and snow water equivalent products this week.  This late season survey marks the last snow survey of the Kings River Basin in 2019 and will inform water managers how much water is carried over into the next water year.
