The following tables list MODIS snow and sea ice data sets available from NSIDC, plus some related data sets that may interest MODIS data users. All MODIS snow and sea ice data sets provide global coverage. Temporal coverage depends on the satellite:
- Terra: 24 February, 2000 - present
- Aqua: 04 July, 2002 - present
The following Version 6 snow cover data sets are currently available at NSIDC. This table will be updated as new data sets are released. NSIDC will continue to distribute Version 5 until Version 6 reprocessing is complete.
Version 5 is currently being replaced by Version 6. NSIDC recommends using Version 6 data if available.
