Hydrometeorological, glaciological and geospatial research data from the Peyto Glacier Research Basin in the Canadian Rockies

Description: Hydrological, meteorological, glaciological, and geospatial data of the Peyto Glacier Research Basin (PGRB) in the Canadian Rockies are presented. Peyto Glacier has been of great interest to glaciological and hydrological research since the 1960s for the study of mass and water balance during the International Hydrological Decade (IHD, 1965-1974). Intensive studies of the glacier and observations of the glacier mass balance continued after the IHD, when the initial seasonal meteorological stations were discontinued, then restarted as continuous stations in the late 1980s. The corresponding hydrometric observations were discontinued in 1977 and restarted in 2013. Data sets presented here include: high resolution, co-registered DEMs derived from original air photos and LiDAR surveys; hourly off-glacier meteorological data recorded from 1987 to present; precipitation data from Bow Summit; and long-term hydrological and glaciological model forcing datasets derived from bias-corrected reanalysis products.
