MOD 10 - Snow Cover

Description:
The MODIS snow product suite is composed of products covering a range of spatial and temporal resolutions, from 500 m to 0.25°, and from swath to daily, to 8-day to monthly. All products provide fractional snow cover, and snow albedo is provided in the 500-m resolution products, and all have been validated to stage 1 or 2. The overall absolute ac-curacy of the 500-m resolution products is ~93%, varying by land cover and snow condi-tion. The snow products are used by climatologists, and by modelers both as input to hy-drological models, e.g., to develop snow-cover depletion curves, and to compare with GCM output.
