The snow water equivalent is another piece of data used later to calculate mean seasonal snow transport.

Average snow water equivalent, or the water equivalent of freshly fallen snow, is shown on the map to the left.

For the case study at Gaylord, the snow water equivalent is 0.09. This means that 10" of snow is equal to 0.9" of liquid precipitation.
