Increasing Remotely Sensed Snow Cover through Composite AMSR-E/MODIS Product
MetadataShow full item record
Accurate mapping of snow cover in mountainous terrain is extremely important, as snow-melt is a major source of water storage and runoff. Therefore, remote sensing of snow cover has wide applications, especially in mountainous terrain where recording ground station data is difficult. Both MODIS and AMSR-E satellite instruments can be used to study snow cover, with the possibility of a composite AMSR-E and MODIS snow cover product increasing accuracy of remote sensing based snow cover. As each instrument complements the other, as AMSR-E can detect through clouds whereas MODIS cannot, and the resolution of MODIS is superior to AMSR-E. The focus is in the study area of the Colorado Headwaters region during the month of January, 2006.
