The MODIS/Terra Snow Cover 8-Day L3 Global 0.05Deg CMG (MOD10C2) data set contains snow cover and Quality Assessment (QA) data, latitudes and longitudes in compressed Hierarchical Data Format-Earth Observing System (HDF-EOS) format, and corresponding metadata. This data set consists of 7200 columns by 3600 rows of global arrays of snow cover in a 0.05 degree 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.
NOTE: Reverb will be decommissioned in August 2016 and replaced with Earthdata Search. All links to Reverb will be removed in August 2016.
