Fractional Snow Cover over Baltic Area

The Fractional Snow Cover product over the Baltic region applies an algorithm optimized for boreal forests uing medium resolution optical satellite data.

This product has the classes fractional snow (scaled between 0 and 100 %), clouds, water surfaces (lakes, rivers, sea), and no data. The spatial resolution of the product is 500 m. The accuracy of the fraction snow cover estimation is ca. 15% at single pixel scale. The product is stored as raster file, with Integer Codes for Classes. The product is derived from multi-spectral optical satellite data, and provides daily snow information only for cloud free areas.
