NYSM Icing Detector Data

This NYSM Icing Detector dataset contains data from Rosemont 0871LH1 Ice Detector (a.k.a., Freezing Rain Sensor; Campbell Scientific, 2015). These instruments were deployed at New York State Mesonet (NYSM) stations in northeastern New York, USA in support of the WINTRE-MIX field campaign. The instrument is used to detect the presence/absence of icing conditions. When icing is present, two different post-processing approaches are used to derive a quantitative estimate of the cumulative thickness of ice accreted. The ice detector measurements are collocated with (or adjacent to) NYSM “standard” stations, which measure a host of other meteorological variables (Brotzge et al. 2020; http://nysmesonet.org/). Two-meter temperature data from these NYSM stations is used when post-processing the icing detector data. NYSM data can be accessed from http://nysmesonet.org/weather/requestdata. This dataset contains both 1 minute and 5 minute data. Both types will be delivered as available for the time period ordered.
