Short summary
The cosmic-ray soil moisture probe (CRP) uses the natural above ground neutron intensity to measure soil water content at a landscape scale. The goal of our research was to use the CRP to monitor how much water is in snowpacks, since snow and soil water affect neutron intensity similarly. We developed a relationship between neutron intensity and snow water. We used the relationship to estimate snow water non-invasively in an area of ~ 300 m radius using neutron intensity readings from the CRP.
