Long time series data of snow cover area on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau (2003-2014)


The long-time series data set of snow cover area on the qinghai-tibet plateau is derived from the fusion of MODIS 005 version and IMS data set, andThe cloud-free products of daily snow cover area were obtained by using interpolation de-cloud algorithm.The projection is latitude and longitude, the spatial resolution is 0.005 degrees (about 500m), and the time is a long time series from January 1, 2003 to December 31, 2014. Each file is the result of the proportion of snow cover area on that day, and the value is 0-100 (%). It is the ENVI standard file, The naming convention: ims_mts_yyyyddd.tif, where YYYY stands for year and DDD stands for Julian day (001-365/366).Files can be directly used ENVI or ARCMAP software open view.
