Model 3600  Federal and 3605 McCall Snow Sampling Tubes

The Mt. Rose or "Federal" type sampler is a professional grade snow sampler based on USFS design criteria. This set measures snow depth and water content to determine snow density. Sensitive spring balance is graduated in both equivalent inches and centimeters of water. The sampler is made with Cutter I.D. of 1.554in and 1.625in  (4.13 cm) I.D. anodized aluminum material. The sampler can be specified in English or metric units with the standard USFS length in 30" long sections and the metric in 1 meter sections. The tubes are precision machined to a very specific volume for accurate water equivalent measurements. The standard sets can be ordered with up to eight sections. The standard Federal cutter is a 16 tooth weighing 3 oz. and is typically used for sampling up to 30 feet deep. For deeper sampling than 30 feet or with layers of heavy ice the McCall cutter is recommended and is a heavier duty cutter weighing 6 oz.

Model 3610 - Adirondack Snow Sampling Tube

The Adirondack-type tube is manufactured of fiberglass with a replaceable stainless steel 40-tooth cutter. The tube is 4 feet (1.2 meters) long, 2 5/8 inches (6.67 cm) i.d. and is marked in both English and metric units for measuring the depth of snow pack. The tube meets USGS standards for noncontamination when the core will be retained for water quality analysis. Aluminum-type models should not be used for collection of water quality samples.

The scale is marked in equivalent water depths in both English and metric units, to a maximum of 25 inches in 1/4 inch increments and 63.5 cm in 0.5 cm increments. The scale is interchangeable with earlier model Adirondack tubes of the same inside diameter.

The Snow Measuring Kit includes an Adirondack-type snow tube with cutter and matching scale with bale.
