MODIS daily cloudless snow products in the Tibetan Plateau (2002-2010)

This data is 2002.07.04-2010.12.31 MODIS daily cloudless snow products in the Tibetan Plateau. Due to the snow and cloud reflection characteristics, the use of optical remote sensing to monitor snow is severely disturbed by the weather. This product is based on the most commonly used cloud removal algorithm, using the MODIS daily snow product and passive microwave data AMSR-E snow water equivalent product, and the daily cloudless snow product in the Tibetan Plateau is developed. The accuracy is relatively high. This product has important value for real-time monitoring of snow cover dynamic changes on the Tibetan Plateau.
