INSAT-3D Imager Level-2C SNOW MAP
Entry ID: 3DIMG_L2C_SNW


Summary
Abstract: INSAT-3D Imager Level-2C SNOW Map in HDF-5 Format

Purpose: The snow-mapping algorithm uses a grouped-criteria technique using the Normalized Difference Snow Index (NDSI) and other spectral threshold tests to identify snow on a pixel-by-pixel basis.
The NDSI is useful for snow mapping, as it reflects more in the visible than in the short-wave IR part of the spectrum.
In addition, the reflectance of most clouds remains high in the short-wave IR, while the reflectance of snow is low.
