This System was developed for the USDA-NRCS Meteor-Burst Network. This System collects data from both the SNOTEL (snowpack telemetry) and SCAN (Soil Climate Analysis Network) programs across the United States. The SNOTEL program allows the NRCS to provide timely and accurate water supply forecasts for the western United States. Via the SCAN program, the NRCS is the leader of a cooperative nationwide, comprehensive soil moister and climate information system designed to support natural resource assessments and conversation activities.
