MODIS/Terra Snow Cover Monthly L3 Global 0.05Deg CMG, Version 5
The MODIS/Terra Snow Cover Monthly L3 Global 0.05Deg CMG (MOD10CM) data set, new for Version 5 (V005), contains snow cover and Quality Assessment (QA) data in Hierarchical Data Format- Earth Observing System (HDF-EOS) format, and corresponding metadata. 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.
Version 5 was the firsts version of this data set. It didn't exist before Version 5.
