Record #118223:

Merging operational satellite and historical station snow cover data to monitor climate change / David A. Robinson.

Title: Merging operational satellite and historical station snow cover data to monitor climate change / David A. Robinson.
Author(s): Robinson, David A.
Date: 1991.
Abstract: Condensed paper. Comparisons of visible satellite and station-derived snow observations are made, and time series from each source are presented. Concludes that lengthy time series of snow cover may be compiled confidently from station observations, permitting documentation of natural fluctuations and trends over past century. Information enhances usefulness of short-term satellite-derived observations in identifying and monitoring future climate change.
Notes:

Offprint: Global and Planetary Change. Vol. 4(1-3) :235-240.
