Global Snow-Water-Equivalent Depth Coefficient-of-Variation Classification
Entry ID: ARCSS138

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set provides a global distribution of nine subgrid snow-depth-variability categories and a coefficient of variation applicable to each category, as the result of the Subgrid SNOW Distribution (SSNOWD) submodel that defines subgrid snow-depth and snow-cover variability. This data set provides the distribution of those nine categories and their coefficient-of-variation values on a global, ... View entire text
