Reconstructed North American Snow Extent, 1900-1993, Version 1

Version 1 eng; usa
  • Abstract
    This data set contains reconstructed monthly North American snow extent values for November through March, 1900-1993. Investigators used a combination of satellite and station observations and based the reconstruction on linear regressions between the two types of observations. The data also includes standard errors of estimates as well as the observed values upon which the regressions were based.
