Record #126331:

The developing moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) snow cover algorithm / G.A. Riggs, Dorothy K. Hall, Vincent V. Salomonson, J.L. Barker.

Title: The developing moderate resolution imaging spectroradiometer (MODIS) snow cover algorithm / G.A. Riggs, Dorothy K. Hall, Vincent V. Salomonson, J.L. Barker.
Author(s): Riggs, G. A.
Hall, Dorothy K.
Salomonson, Vincent V.
Barker, J. L.
Date: [1993]
In: Eastern Snow Conference. Proceedings. ([1993]), Vol. 50th Annual Meeting ([1993])
Abstract: Elements of algorithm to be implemented with Earth observing system MODIS, scheduled for launch in 1998, are being developed and tested. Algorithm will generate global and regional snow-cover data products weekly. It uses unique spectral and spatial characteristics of MODIS to identify snow by reflectance characteristics. It implements series of criteria tests and normalized snow difference index (NSDI) to identify snow and to discriminate snow from many types of cloud. Landsat thematic mapper (TM) data, MODIS data, and advanced very high resolution radiometer (AVHRR) data are used to prototype algorithm, which has been tested on several Landsat TM scenes with good results.
