How NOAA Views Snow from Space: A Product Survey
Presentation file posted here when available.
||Friday, 9 December 2016
12:00 - 1:00 pm EST
SSMC2 Room 8246, 1325 East West Highway, Silver Spring, Maryland
The NOAA Satellite and Information Service has a variety of
satellite products for estimating snow cover and snow properties
from both geostationary and polar-orbiting satellites. Visible
imagers provide the extent of snow cover as binary maps, and also
the fraction of snow cover within each image element (pixel).
Passive microwave instruments provide snow cover, snow depth, and
snow water equivalent. There are also snow products that use
multiple instruments, and others that have an interactive element.
This presentation will provide an overview of NOAA's snow products,
briefly describing each and providing a high-level assessment of
their strengths and weaknesses. International snow product
intercomparison projects will also be discussed.
Remote attendance is via GotoWebinar. Registration link is below.
Dial-in information is provided after registration.
