Short Name:

MODIS/Terra CGF Snow Cover Daily L3 Global 500m SIN Grid V061

This global Level-3 data set (MOD10A1F) provides daily cloud-free snow cover derived from the MODIS/Terra Snow Cover Daily L3 Global 500m SIN Grid data set (MOD10A1). Grid cells in MOD10A1 which are obscured by cloud cover are filled by retaining clear-sky views of the surface from previous days. A separate parameter is provided which tracks the number of days in each cell since the last clear-sky observation. Each data granule contains a 10° x 10° tile projected to the 500 m sinusoidal grid. The terms "Version 61" and "Collection 6.1" are used interchangeably in reference to this release of MODIS data.
