mio::FilterDeGrass Class Reference

Detailed Description

This filter is used to distinguish if snow (HS) is on the ground or not.

This is useful because the ultrasonic sensor cannot distinguish between snow or vegetation/grass on the ground. The filter is based on total snow depth (HS), snow surface temperature (TSS), ground surface temperature (TSG) and reflected shortwave radiation (RSWR). Different steps to do:

  1. calculate possible offset of TSS (reason: at some stations in some springs the TSS increases although snow is still on the ground)
  2. calculate correlation of TSS and TSG in spring (normally both temperatures increase at the same time in spring which results in a high correlation; low correlation if TSS and TSG increase not parallel which leads in connection with a high offset of TSS to the assumption, that TSS is false), then:
    1. if TSS has a low offset and the correlation between TSS and TSG is high, the algorithm analyses based on the daily Max/Min/Mean of TSS if snow is on the ground or not
    2. if no TSS is available or the offset of TSS is high/correlation of TSS and TSG is low, the algorithm analyses based on the variance of TSG and the value of TSG if snow is on the ground or not.

Normally, the filter computes any potential offset on TSS before using it in its algorithms. But it is possible to provide the offset that must be used, with the optional TSS_OFFSET argument (then TSS_meas + TSS_offset is compared to given thresholds to determine if snow can exist on the ground, so you can give a negative offset to more easily keep snow on the ground).

Example of use:

HS::filter1 = DETECT_GRASS
Note
  • two of the used criterias are currently only valid for mid-northern latitudes (months when the season might start);
  • it is probably a good idea to use a FilterRate filter after this one in order to remove some potential left-over peaks.
