what's the unit of "m of water equivalent" for snowfall

Dear all, 

I would like to know what exactly is what's the unit of "m of water equivalent" for snowfall. 

I know that for Snow depth I need Snow density to convert Snow depth m of equivalent water to meters, but what about Snowfall ? I need it in m, not in m of equivalent water.


Hope to have some feedback soon

Kind regards

Best of luck with your atmospheric research and thanks for the work you do!


I read at that we we need to multiply by 1000 to convert "m of water equivalent "  to convert to kgm-2 or mm.

Even in the snow depth and snowfall case ??

Is this correct

Many Thanks
