Nearly 1,500 cubic MILES of snow pile up across North America every year, new estimates reveal

More snow is covering North America than scientists previously realized, according to a new study.

Researchers from Ohio State University discovered that the amount of snow covering the continent is a whopping 50 percent above the amount scientists previously believed to be blanketing North America.

The researchers discovered that about 1,200 cubic miles of snow accumulate each year.

The analysis, published in Geophysical Research Letters, said that if the snow were to be distributed evenly across North America it would be slightly over seven-and-a-half inches deep.

If the snow were to fall in Ohio only it would be 150 feet deep.
