A massive winter storm system pummeled the eastern United States in late January 2016, with two low-pressure systems merging into a potent nor’easter that dropped heavy snow from Virginia to New England. By late afternoon on Jan. 23, snowfall totals were approaching records in several states, and hurricane-force winds were battering the coastlines and leading to serious flooding. The storm was expected to continue through the morning of Jan. 24.

For those interested in calculating the effect of snow loading from GPS data, UNAVCO would like to highlight resources available through the UNAVCO archive. GPS data collected through the EarthScope Plate Boundary Observatory and other networks in the footprint of winter storm Jonas with data archived at UNAVCO are available via ftp or through the UNAVCO Data Archive Interface. Roughly 33 continuously operating GPS stations with data in the UNAVCO archive fall within the footprint of winter storm Jonas.
