Description:
Abstract:
The BOREAS RSS-08 team utilized Landsat TM images to perform mapping of snow extent over the SSA. This data set consists of two Landsat TM images which were used to determine the snow-covered pixels over the BOREAS SSA on 18-Jan-1993 and on 06-Feb-1994. Companion files include example thumbnail images that may be viewed using a convenient viewer utility.
