A new set of perceptually effective colour palettes for snow profiles

Co-author(s): Stan Nowak, Pascal Haegeli

Visual representations of observed and simulated snow profiles aim to convey critical snowpack information in a quick and easy-to-understand format. While colours are an important component of visualizations, they have not received much attention in our community. We present a new set of colour palettes for grain types designed with visual perception and information visualization principles. The palettes emphasize important snowpack features relevant for avalanche forecasting.
