This data set consists of 7200 column by 3600 row global arrays of snow cover in a 0.05 deg Climate Modeling Grid (CMG). MODIS snow cover data are based on a snow mapping algorithm that employs a Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI) and other criteria tests. Monthly average snow cover is calculated from the daily global products for the month.
