Improving Mountainous Snow Cover Fraction Mapping via Artificial Neural Networks Combined With MODIS and Ancillary Topographic Data

Abstract

A multilayer feedforward artificial neural network (ANN) is developed for mountainous fractional snow cover (FSC) mapping. This is trained with back propagation to learn the relationship between FSC and Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) products (reflectance at seven bands, normalized difference snow index, land surface temperature (LST… (More)
