Collection of deposit samples at snowy conditions
Today Markus Oismüller was collecting the precipitation deposit samples from the HOAL weather station. The first try yesterday to 'just' drive down with the 4WD car to the spot of the weather station failed due to too high snow on the road. Luckily a neighbouring farmer could help to get out the car of the snow again.
Finally the samples were collected by foot. See on the pictures the beautiful snow cover over the HOAL Petzenkirchen with e.g. some soil moisture stations heading out through the snow.
