ESA Snow Climate Change Initiative (snow_cci)

Status: ongoing
Publication State: preview

Abstract

The overarching goal of snow_cci is the generation of homogeneous, well calibrated, long-term time series of key snow cover parameters (snow area extent and snow mass) from multi-sensor satellite data for climate applications. A main motivation for this initiative are significant discrepancies in the climatologies, anomalies, and trends in global snow cover time series from different products, detected in the ESA QA4EO Satellite Snow Product Intercomparison and Evaluation project (SnowPEx) (see http://snowpex.enveo.at/).

The project started on 17 September 2018. The first phase is planned for 3 years duration.
