The Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) has a cooperative program with Mongolian scientists to produce snow depth maps for that country. Snow depth data has been provided to GLERL. A raster data set was compiled from these data and preliminary maps produced. Since all stations are currently inside the country in valleys, the snow depths are not correctly projected across the country’s borders or over mountains. This progress report presents the preliminary maps and outlines the future course of the project. Information on locale, climate, people, customs, and problems with the study is also included.
