The purpose of a hydrologic telemetering system is to provide data on snowmelt runoff parameters from remote mountain locations at frequent intervals and at sites where such information is pertinent to operating reservoirs for flood control, irrigation, and power releases. The system is devised by the Engineering Experiment Station, University of Idaho at Moscow. The parameters selected for measurement are; total accumulation of precipitation, soil moisture, air temperature, snow quality (wetness), snow water equivalent, and the snow depth. A description and photos of the several procedures for measuring these parameters are shown, also schematic diagrams of the electronic telemetering systems at the sending and receiving end of the system.
