Short Name:

CAR SnowEx17 BRDF Measurements L1 V2 (CAR_SNOWEX17_BRDF) at GES DISC

SnowEx is a multi-year airborne project to help advance capabilities, and plan for a near-future space mission to monitor global seasonal snow water equivalent - currently an inconsistently collected and difficult-to-obtain data point that scientists say is critical to understanding the world's water resources. This data set consists of observations made with the CAR instrument and includes values for bidirectional reflectance factor at varying spectral bands.
