New data set release: VIIRS/NPP Snow Cover Daily L3 Global 375m SIN Grid

The VIIRS/NPP Snow Cover Daily L3 Global 375m SIN Grid, Version 1 data set is now available at the NASA National Snow and Ice Data Center Distributed Active Archive Center (NSIDC DAAC). This data set contains daily snow cover derived from radiance data acquired by the Visible Infrared Imaging Radiometer Suite (VIIRS) on board the Suomi National Polar-orbiting Partnership (NPP) satellite. Snow cover is identified using the Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI). These data are provided as gridded composites, projected to a 375 m Sinusoidal grid, and updated daily from 19 January 2012 to present.
