Data Set ID:
NSIDC-0531
Data Set Summary:
This data set, part of the NASA Making Earth System Data Records for Use in Research Environments (MEaSUREs) program, offers users weekly 100 km Northern Hemisphere snow cover extent represented by three different variables. Two of the variables are derived from individual source products: the NOAA/NCDC Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Extent Climate Data Record and Defense Meteorological Satellite Program (DMSP) passive microwave brightness temperatures, respectively. The third variable merges the other two into a single representation of snow cover.
