VIIRS/NPP Snow Cover 6-Min L2 Swath 375m V001

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set reports the location of snow cover using radiance data acquired by the Visible Infrared Imager Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite. Snow cover is identified using the Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI) and a series of quality control screens.
