water equivalent of snow

The amount of water that would be obtained if the snow sample were completely melted.

The snow sample must be obtained from a uniform volume, that is, either by melting snow in a calibrated container (e.g., an 8-in. rain gauge) or determined by weight (e.g., a snow pillow).
