Global Monthly EASE-Grid Snow Water Equivalent Climatology
Entry ID: NSIDC-0271

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: This data set comprises global, monthly satellite-derived Snow Water Equivalent (SWE) climatologies from November 1978 through May 2007, with periodic updates released as resources permit. Global data are gridded to the Northern and Southern 25 km Equal-Area Scalable Earth Grids (EASE-Grids). Global snow water equivalent is derived from Scanning Multichannel Microwave Radiometer (SMMR) and ... View entire text
