Abstract

Monthly time series from two satellite snow-cover record are merged to study the construction of a climate-data record for the Northern Hemisphere. Comparison of the Moderate-Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) and Rutgers University Climate Lab (RUCL) maps is also presented. Satellite-derived maps of snow cover for the Northern Hemisphere have been generated using a variety of satellites, sensors and techniques. To make the MODIS maps potentially more useful for modelers, and for improved comparison with the RUCL maps, land cells containing 'night' or 'cloud' on the MODIS maps were replaced with 100% snow cover.
