Northern Hemisphere Snow Cover Anomalies, April 1966 - April 2010. Rutgers Snow Lab

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) meteorologists began production of satellite-derived maps of Northern Hemisphere snow cover extent (SCE) in late 1966. Map data have been used in international assessments of climate variability and change, and in investigations regarding the role of snow cover in the climate system. Despite their proven climate utility, meteorological forecasting has been the driving force behind producing these maps. As such, changes (documented and undocumented) in mapping methodologies have occurred over time, without a focus on their climatological continuity.

Members of our team have kept a watchful eye on changes in this satellite environmental data record (EDR). From this EDR, we have developed a satellite SCE climate data record (CDR).

    I recently stumbled on ya while I was surfing the net and I gotta say, Bravo.

    Way freakin' cool and you have info that won't be found if you just pay attention to the MSM.
